Professor Oserheimen Osunbor was elected Senator for the Edo Central constituency of Edo State, Nigeria at the start of the Nigerian Fourth Republic, running on the People's Democratic Party (PDP) platform. He took office on 29 May 1999.[1] After taking his seat in the Senate in June 1999 he was appointed to committees on Rules & Procedures, Ethics, Judiciary, Water Resources and Government Affairs (Chairman).[2] Osunbor was reelected to his senate seat in April 2003.[3]

Osunbor was elected Governor of Edo State in Nigeria in April 2007 on the People's Democratic Party (PDP) platform.[4] On 20 March 2008, the Edo State Governorship Election Tribunal declared that Osunbor's election was invalid, and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw his certificate and declare Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole of the Action Congress (AC) party the winner.[5] On November 11, 2008, a federal Appeal Court sitting in Benin City upheld the ruling of the state's elections petitions tribunal, declaring Oshiomole to be the Governor of Edo State. The decision was based on several voting irregularities.[6]
