The Ebonyi State National and State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja has reserved judgment in the petition filed by the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, Micheal Nnachi, and his Labor Party LP counterpart Linus Okorie who are challenging the declaration of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, Dave Umahi as the winner of the Ebonyi South Senatorial seat.

 

The petitioners are asking the tribunal to nullify the election of the former Governor of the State because he did not score the majority of valid votes cast in the election and there was overvoting in some polling units.

 

They alleged that the number of collected Permanent Voter Cards in areas where elections were canceled outnumbered the margin of win in the results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC.

 

Though the counsel for the LP, Abdulkareem Ibrahim, and the PDP, Tochukwu Maduka believed that the February 25 National Assembly poll that produced Umahi who is now Minister of Works should be nullified, his counsel Roy Umahi did not believe the petitioners have been able to prove their case before the tribunal.
