The Edo State High Court sitting in Benin has voided Audu Ganiyu, the Deputy Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the September 19, 2020 governorship election.
Justice H.A Courage-Ogbebor, delivered the judgement in Benin, stating that Audu Ganiyu presented false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission in his Form EC9.
A member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Kadiri Oshoakhemhe, had filed a case against the APC deputy governorship candidate and two others.
Audu Ganiyu was the running mate of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the APC governorship candidate in the last governorship election won by Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party.
