PDP Reps candidate in Kaduna appeals tribunal’s verdict



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Kaura Federal Constituency of Kaduna State, Gideon Gwani, has approached the Court of Appeal to set aside the verdict of the National and State House of Assembly Election Petition Tribunal on his petition challenging the outcome of the February 25 election in the constituency.

The tribunal had on July 28 affirmed the victory of Mr. Donatus Mathew of the Labour Party in the election.

Gwani had in the petition urged the tribunal to nullify the election on the grounds that Mathew was not sponsored by the LP for the election.

He also claimed that the election was marred by irregularities, including over-voting and non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

But the tribunal dismissed the petition for lack of merit.

In his latest attempt at reversing the outcome of the election, the PDP candidate urged the appeal court to set aside the tribunal’s decision and grant all the reliefs sought in the petition.

He listed Mathew, LP, and INEC as respondents in the case.
