Written by thereachfm on August 27, 2019
The National and State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Umuahia, has upheld the election of Ossy Prestige of the All Progressives Grand Alliance as duly elected representative for Aba North/South Federal Constituency.
According to reports, Uzor Azubuike of the Peoples Democratic Party and Mascot Uzor-Kalu of the All Progressives Congress had separately approached the tribunal to nullify Prestige’s election.
In their petitions, they contended that Prestige did not win the majority of the lawful votes cast at the Feb. 23 poll and urged the tribunal to respectively declare them the rightful winners.
In a unanimous judgment delivered by a member of the panel, Justice Igwe, the tribunal dismissed Azubuike’s petition for lacking in merit.
