The Abia Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, on Friday, dismissed the Peoples Democratic Party’s petition against Governor Alex Otti and the Labour Party.
The PUNCH reported that in her ruling, the tribunal presided over by Hon. Justice H. T. D Gwadah said that the petitioners, the PDP and others, “failed in their three grounds and their petitions dismissed for lack of merit.”
The three grounds include non-qualification of Otti to contest the governorship, non-membership of the LP and provision of authentic National Youth Service Corps certificate and inability to prove corrupt practices.
The tribunal is now into the All Progressives Congress’ petition against the LP.
