Edo State High Court presiding in Benin, on Wednesday nullified the All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy governorship candidate, Audu Ganiyu, in the September 19, 2020 gubernatorial election.

A member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kadiri Oshoakhemhe, had before now filed a case against Ganiyu and two others.

The presiding judge, Justice H.A Courage-Ogbebor, on passing the verdict, said Ganiyu presented false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in his Form EC9.

Ganiyu was Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s running mate in the poll PDP’s Governor Godwin Obaseki emerged victorious.

In December 2020, a Federal High court in Abuja had dismissed a case that demanded his disqualification in the election.

The suit, filed by the Action Democratic Party (ADP), had alleged that Ganiyu gave counterfeit documents to INEC.
