ABUJA Tribunals Uphold Akpabio, Dankwambo’s Elections

The governorship elec­tion tribunal in Gombe State has upheld the elec­tion of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The tribunal on yester­day dismissed a petition filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the April 11 elec­tion, Inuwa Yahya.

The tribunal said the pe­titioner simply “wasted the time of the tribunal”.

It also accused the pe­titioner of deliberately at­tempting to defame the tri­bunal while the case lasted.

While rejecting the case, the tribunal fined the peti­tioner N3, 500.

Meanwhile, the Akwa Ibom Legislative Elections Tribunal sitting in Dutsen Alhaji district of Abuja, has upheld the victory of for­mer governor of the state, Goodswill Akpabio as a Senator in the March 28 election.
