Tribunal upholds Uzodinma’s election in Imo



The Imo State governorship election petition tribunal on Friday upheld Governor Hope Uzodinma’s victory in last year election in the state.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the election ahead of the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) candidate, Samuel Anyanwu and Nathan Achonu of the Labour Party.

Dissatisfied with the outcome, Achonu approached the tribunal to nullify the election over alleged non-compliance with the Electoral Act.

However, a three-member panel of the tribunal led by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebey, dismissed the LP candidate’s petition for lack of merit.

The panel held that the election complied with the Electoral Act and declared Uzodinma as duly elected governor of the state.
