Tri­bunal up­holds Dankwambo’s vic­tory

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ahmed Mo­hammed,Gombe

The elec­tion pe­ti­tion tri­bunal in Gombe yesterday up­held the April 11 elec­tion vic­tory of Gover­nor Ibrahim Has­san Dankwambo of the PDP.

Chair­man of the tri­bunal, Jus­tice Mo­hammed Su­rajo, in a four and half hour judg­ment, dis­missed the pe­ti­tion filed by the APC can­di­date, Al­haji Muhammed Inuwa Ya­haya, for want of cred­i­ble ev­i­dence.

ýHe said the pe­ti­tioner failed to prove his case that the elec­tion that pro­duced Dankwambo as win­ner was char­ac­terised by elec­toral mal­prac­tices to war­rant dis­missal.
