Ihedioha wins at Tribunal, sending Nwosu, Uzodinma, Ararume home.
Ihedioha floors opponent at the Election Tribuna for the Imo State Gubernatorial race.
The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal for Imo State, sitting in Abuja on Saturday affirmed the election of Gov. Emeka Ihedioha.
Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Mallami Umar-Dogondagi, dismissed the petition of the candidate of the Action Alliance Party, Mr. Uche Nwosu, for incompetence.
In a unanimous decision, the three-member panel, also struck out the petition of the All Progressive Congress, APC, candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodinma.
Three petitions were filed by the governorship candidates of the Action Alliance (AA), All Progressives Congress (APC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), asking the Tribunal to nullify the election of Mr Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), on the ground that he was unlawfully declared as the governor of the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Tribunal held that the three petitions challenging the declaration of Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), lacked merit.
The petitioners challenged the emergence of the PDP candidate as the winner of the March 9 governorship election because irregularities marred the poll.
