Tribunal dismisses PDP’s petition against Governor Nwifuru


The Ebonyi State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja has dismissed the petition filed by the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party against Governor Francis Nwifuru.

In a unanimous judgment, a three-member panel headed by Justice Lekan Ogunmoye, dismissed the petition for lacking in merit.

The three-member panel held that it failed to prove that Nwifuru was still a member of the PDP when he ran for Governor in the March 18 governorship poll.
