Tribunal Strikes Out PDP’s Petition, Affirms Otti As Duly Elected

 

 

By: People’s Voice Nigeria | News

 

The Abia State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Umuahia has dismissed three grounds of prayer brought by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Okey Ahaiwe, against Governor Alex Otti.

 

The tribunal, which delivered the judgement at about 1:20 p.m., dismissed Ahaiwe’s case for lack of merit.

 

Ahaiwe had challenged the declaration of Otti as the duly elected governor by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

 

In his prayers through his lawyer, Paul Ananaba (SAN), Ahaiwe had urged the court to remove Otti and declare him the winner.

 

The PDP candidate said the electoral victory of Otti did not conform with Section 77 of the Electoral Act, among other prayers.

 

However, the tribunal threw away all the requests for lack of merit.
