The Supreme Court, on Wednesday, upheld the election of Abdullahi Sule as the governor of Nasarawa State.
The seven-man panel led by Justice Mary Peter-Odili dismissed the appeal of David Ombugadu and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the March 9, 2019 victory of Sule.
Justice Peter-Odili said the appeal by Ombugadu lacked merit.
Recall that the PDP and its candidate in the 2019 Governorship election, Mr David Ombugadu in August prayed the Election Petition Tribunal in Nasarawa, to order a fresh election in the State.
Counsel for the PDP, Mr. Wale Olanikpekun, SAN, while adopting his final written addresses, alleged that INEC did not comply with the accreditation requirements in more than 90 per cent of the polling units in the state.
He said that they had tendered certified true copies of voter registers to the tribunal, adding, “the total votes that returned the governor did not tally with the number of accredited voters”
