The petition of the former vice president and his party was dismissed in its entirety, by the PEPT led by Justice Mohammed Garba, as failing to prove beyond a reasonable doubt why the petitioners should be declared winner of the February 23 exercise.

Addressing the media after the ruling, a member of the legal team of the petitioners, Mike Ozekhome, said the judgement will be challenged.

“It (judgement) is worrisome, we will appeal that judgment,” Mr Ozekhome said.

As at press time, the former number two citizen is yet to react to the decision of the tribunal.
