The National and #State Assemblies Elections Petitions #Tribunal sitting in Jalingo, #Taraba state, on Tuesday dismissed a petition filed by Adamu Ibrahim of the Peoples Democratic #Party challenging the victory of the All Progressives Congress, Garba Garba-Chedi, in the March 28 National Assembly elections.
PREMIUM TIMES reports that the Petitioner, Mr. Ibrahim, urged the Tribunal to nullify the #election and order the conduct of fresh election, alleging that the winner of the election used a forged school certificate.
However, after hearing submissions of counsels and witnesses from all the parties involved, the Tribunal in its Tuesday’s judgement, said the issue of certificate forgery is a criminal case and the petitioner did not establish, beyond reasonable doubt, all the necessary facts of forgery in his submissions.
“The petition has failed and therefore dismissed,” the court ruled
Meanwhile, another petition struck out by the tribunal in Wednesday’s sitting was the one filed by #APC’s David Ochive challenging the election of Pius Sabo of #PDP as member for Wukari one constituency in the state’s House of Assembly.
The petition was struck out because the petitioner failed to comply strictly with the orders of the tribunal directing him to submit a clean copy of his petition excluding the fourth and fifth respondents.
