Appeal Court upholds Nasarawa gov’s election after tribunal sack

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Thursday affirmed the victory of the Nasarawa state governor, Abdullahi Sule.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Sule of the All Progressives Congress as the winner of the election, while David Ombugad of the Peoples Democratic Party came second.

But the tribunal led by Justice Ezekiel Ajayi in a split judgment held that based on evidence from the various polling units before the tribunal, Ombugadu had the majority of valid votes at the election

But Sule appealed the judgment and asked the appellate court to set it aside.

Delivering judgment on the matter on Thursday, the court expunged from its records the evidence and exhibits from
PW5, 6,7,8,12,13,20, and 21 which the tribunal relied on.
