Tribunal Declares Peter Mbah Duly Elected Governor Of Enugu State

The Enugu governorship election petitions tribunal has ruled that Peter Mbah is the state’s duly elected governor.

The three-member tribunal headed by Justice Kudirat  Morayo struck out the Labour Party (LP) ’s allegations of over-voting and bypassing BVAS. It ruled that Mbah was duly elected by the majority of lawful and valid votes cast at the election. On the allegation that Mbah presented a forged NYSC discharge certificate, the tribunal ruled that the PDP candidate complied with the qualifications provided in the constitution for a person to contest for the governorship election.

After thoroughly examining the evidence presented, the tribunal found no substantial grounds to support the LP’s claims, ultimately affirming the legitimacy of Mbah’s victory. The judgment was delivered on Thursday afternoon, favouring Mbah, who contested on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.
