Tribunal Upholds Abia Governor Ikpeazu’s Election, Dismisses Alex Otti

The Abia State governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Umuahia has dismissed the petition of APGA against the election of Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu.

The tribunal, in its ruling, dismissed the petition of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate, Dr Alex Otti, for lack of merit.

Dr Otti had filed a petition against the return of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as winner of the April 11, 2015 election in the state.

Dr. Otti had sought the nullification of the election of Ikpeazu on the grounds that the election was marred by irregularities and malpractice.
