Ihedioha Wins At Tribunal

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal for Imo state sitting in Abuja on Saturday affirmed the election of Governor Emeka Ihedioha.
Delivering judgment, Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Mallami Umar-Dogondagi, dismissed the petition of the candidate of the Action Alliance Party, Uche Nwosu, for incompetence.
In a unanimous decision, the three-member panel, also struck out  the petition of the All Progressive Congress, APC, candidate, Senator 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 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 Ihedioha lacked merit.
The petitioners challenged the emergence of the PDP candidate as winner of the March, 9 governorship election on the grounds that the election was marred by irregularities.
The tribunal held that candidate of the Action Alliance, AA, Uche Nwosu, Ifeanyi Ararume of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, and Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress, APC, failed to establish their petitions against governor Ihedioha.
