BREAKING: Tribunal confirms Hope Uzodinma as Imo State Governor

The Imo State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal on Friday, May 24, upheld the election of Hope Uzodimma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governor of Imo State.

The tribunal, which gave its ruling in Abuja, also dismissed the petition of the Labour Party, LP, and its governorship candidate, Athan Achonu.

In a unanimous decision delivered by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay, the three-man panel of the tribunal held that Uzodimma’s election as Imo State governor complied substantially with the provisions of the Electoral Act.

The tribunal further held that the Labour Party in its petition failed to prove the allegation of over-voting and non-compliance to the Electoral Act.
