Tribunal declares PDP’s Ombugadu Nasarawa governor, sacks APC’s Sule – moneyamebo

Date:

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Nasarawa State has nullified the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress, and declared PDP’s David Ombugadu as the rightful winner of the March 18, 2023 governorship election in the state.

Delivering the judgment virtually, Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Ezekiel Ajayi, declared Ombugadu of the PDP as the lawfully elected governor of Nasarawa State.

Ombugadu had earlier filed a suit at the governorship tribunal seeking to nullify the purported victory of Governor Sule.

He complained to the tribunal that his actual votes were unjustifiably reduced while that of Abdullahi Sule of the APC was increased to aid Sule to victory, particularly in the forms EC8Bs of Gayam and Chiroma Wards of Lafia Local Government Area.
