Delta governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Ken Pela, has filed a suit against the State Election Petition Court following the outcome of the March 18 gubernatorial poll.
The LP candidate is challenging the process that saw Sheriff Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as winner of the controversial election.
In a series of tweets on his verified handle on Monday, Pela disclosed the pre-trial hearing conference for his petition will commence at 9.00 am tomorrow, Tuesday, June 6.
“I call on all Obidients and well meaning Deltans who are looking forward to a new and better Delta to attend the sessions holding at the Federal High Court Asaba as we leave our fate and the fate of millions of Deltans in the hands of the judiciary,” he wrote.
He added; “Regrettably, I am unable to physically attend these first sessions due to circumstances beyond my control, but know that my heart is there with you.
“It has been a long walk to freedom, but most certainly, a better Delta is PO-ssible.”
Oborevwori, in the last election, scored 360,234 votes to beat his closest rival of the APC, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, who got 240,229 and the Labour Party candidate, Ken Pela, who polled 48,047 votes.
