It will be recalled that Ize-Iyamu challenged Obaseki's victory of the governorship election conducted on September 28, 2016 before the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in Edo, but lost.

"As the apex court in the country we have nothing else to say but to congratulate Governor Godwin Obaseki for the victory which he has attained at the Supreme Court".

But it has however expressed shock that the ruling went against the party's candidate Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu did not get the outcome he sought.

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the candidate of the PDP challenging the election of Governor Godwin Obaseki for lacking in merit.

"I thank Edo people for their patience with us". Our party continues to be a beacon of hope for all those who desire good governance and an end to the deceit and ineptitude of the current administration.
