Election tribunal gives Edo to Oshiomhole

Guardian Newspapers: "FORMER Labour leader Adams Oshiomhole scored a major political victory yesterday as the Edo State gubernatorial election tribunal sitting in Benin City declared him the rightful winner of the April 14, 2007 governorship polls.
It was also a remarkable triumph for his party, the Action Congress (AC), as it claimed a second state, after Lagos.
In a six-hour judgment, the tribunal ordered that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Certificate of Return on which strength Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had been the state governor should be withdrawn from him and given to the former Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) president."
