The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has restored the Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Oborevwori Sheriff as the Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the State.

Delivering Judgment, the presiding Judge, Peter Ige, held that claims against Sheriff are criminal in nature and must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.

Justice Ige voided and set aside the judgment of Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, which had on July 7 nullified his nomination on grounds of certificate forgery and perjury.

The Judge affirmed the victory of the Speaker in the May 25 Primary election where he polled 590 votes to defeat Edevbie who scored only 113 votes to come second.
