Abuja - The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Ovwigho Igbuya, has commended the judges of the National and State House of Assembly Election Petition Tribunal Asaba for upholding the election of Ighoyota Amori, the Senator representing Delta Central.

Speaking from Asaba, Igbuya said the victory of Amori at the tribunal was “a source of great happiness for the entire people of the senatorial district.”

“Amori’s victory is both historic and spectacular. It is the triumph of democracy and a clear sign of the trust and confidence that the people of Delta Central have in him,” said Igbuya.

Labeling his victory as a great milestone in the development of the Urhobo nation, Igbuya applauded the judges for keeping Delta Central firmly on the road to development as well as the people of Delta Central who gave Amori the mandate to articulate, defend and espouse their interests in the Senate.

Igbuya urged National Assembly members from Delta State to continue to collaborate with the state government to enhance even and speedy development of the state. 

The People’s Democratic Party candidate had won the poll ahead of Labour Party candidate, Obaisi Oma-Agege, and Halims Agoda of the All Progressives Congress.

Oma-Agege disputed the outcome citing some irregularities.
