Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki is definitely a happy man right now.

The Appeal Court on Friday validated his election as the governor of Edo State.

The PDP and its candidate, Ize Iyamu, had challenged Obaseki’s election, alleging manipulation of the governorship election.

The election petition tribunal earlier upheld Obaseki's victory. He succeeds Adam Oshiomhole who was in office for 8 years on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
