PAMELA EBOH, Awka
The National/State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Awka, Anambra State on Wednesday affirmed the senator representing Anambra North Senatorial zone, Mrs. Stella Oduah, as the authentic winner of February 2019 senatorial election.
The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA candidate, Dr. Chinedu Emeka, had dragged Oduah to the tribunal insisting that he won the election.
He alleged that Oduah was not qualified to contest the election because she did not possess the required academic qualifications.
He had pointed out in his petition that at the time of election, Oduah was still a bonafide member of APGA.
He also stressed that the election did not comply with the Electoral Act.
In her judgement, the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Esther Haruna, said the petitioner failed to prove his allegations.
