Election petition tribunal seating in Asaba Delta State capital was on Friday September 6, 2019 upholds the election of the elected member representing Warri Federal Constituency Hon. Chief Thomas Ereyitomi JP as the duly elected occupant of the Warri federal constituency seat and dismissed the petition filled by the former reps member Hon. Daniel Reyenieju.
While upholding the election of Chief Ereyitomi JP, the Tribunal agreed with the objections filed by the Counsel to PDP and Chief Thomas Ereyitomi respectively on the incompetence of the Petition, the PDP had argued that since SDP the Petitioner’s Party had opted out from the start, the Petitioners Petition could no longer be sustained in view of the fact that it was commenced on oath as a joint Petition. The other option for the Petitioners would have been to amend but the time within which do so had elapsed and no extension of time is permitted by the sui generis nature of election petitions.
Though in addition apart from the technical defect of the petition, the Tribunal proceeded to examine the matter on the merit of it, and pronounced judgment on merit and found out that the evidence of the Respondents preponderated over that of the PETITIONER.
Therefore the Petition was dismissed accordingly.
In an address before the commissioning, Chairman of Warri South Local Government, Dr. Michael Tidi, noted that the essence of renovating the 110 lock-up stalls handed over to the council by Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, under his leadership and the construction of additional 120 open market stalls, was to change the narrative of Warri from negativity in all sectors to positivity, in line with his administration’s policy of enhancing the socio-economic fortunes of the local government area.
While stressing that the desire to accommodate the traders that had hitherto been in the market without shops, informed expansion in the market, Dr. Tidi expressed optimism that the once moribund Warri Port, will soon experience beehive of economic activities as a result of concession of a section of the port.
He disclosed that in the next few weeks, the second Warri Economic Summit will be staged by the council, to consolidate on the gains of the maiden edition.
The Warri South Local Government Chief Executive, appealed to people of Warri to contribute their quota towards the development of the council area and enjoined indigenes of Ugbuwangue Community as well as the traders to maintain the market and other infrastructural projects executed in the community.
The Managing Director of DESOPADEC, Bashorun Askia Ogieh, in his remarks, described the inauguration of the new market as a classified example of positive synergy between agencies of government.
The Deputy Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party in Delta State, Barr. Ada Val Arenyeka, the Head (Olare-Aja) of Ugbuwangue Community, Prince Agindotan Yonwuren and leader of the traders in the market, Mrs. Stella Izuagie, commended the Dr. Tidi administration for making the market a reality, despite initial challenges.
