Governorship Election: Tribunal Begins Sitting In Kaduna

A 3-man panel of the Tribunal handling the petitions filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Isa Ashiru, alongside other political parties has been inaugurated, Thursday, in Kaduna.

The PDP had earlier challenged the victory of the Kaduna state Governor, Mallam Uba Sani of the All Progress Congress (APC), with the claims that the last governorship election in the state was manipulated in favor of the incumbent Governor.

Similarly, A. A and two other political parties are also challenging the process of the governorship election in the state.

In his inaugural speech, the Chairman of the panel, Justice Victor O. Oviawe, promised to ensure that the Tribunal upholds and works within the ambit of the provision of the constitution.

Justice Oviawe averred that the Tribunal will be just, and fair and do the right thing in the interest of the public, while he also disclosed that five petitions are before the court.

Speaking further, Justice Oviawe sought the cooperation of the Bar to enable the court to timely deliver in line with the provisions of the Electoral Act.

In his remarks, the Chairman of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) Tajudeen Muhammed, assured the panel of the NBA’s support, adding that the Bar will give utmost cooperation to the Bench throughout the process of the case.

Other members of the panel are Justice D.A Damulak and Justice N. Nonye.

The Tribunal also said it would be sitting daily to ensure it completes its task within the stipulated time.
