PDP Candidate Looses election Case in tribunal
The National /State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, has dismissed the case filed by Mr. John Mike- Abdul of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the election of Senator Godiya Akwashiki (APC) in the 2019 general elections.
Consequently, the tribunal upheld the election of Akwashiki as the lawful winner of the senatorial election held in the Northern Senatorial District of Nasarawa State. In a judgement read by Mrs. Iboro Ukpanah, a member of the three – man panel, while dismissing the case, said the petitioner failed to prove his case beyond reasonable doubt as it was lacking in merit. The panel member further said the evidence brought before the tribunal by the petitioner were not admissible in the eyes of the law.
