Yesterday, the Enugu State Governor Election Petitions Tribunal dismissed an application seeking to prevent Peter Mbah from assuming the state’s governorship on May 29. The Action Democratic Party (ADP) and its gubernatorial candidate, Nnamdi Omeje, in the March 18 gubernatorial election, and his People’s Redemption Party (PRP) opponent, Chris Agu, had asked the court to halt the inauguration until then. Things are confirmed. They had said it amounted to giving the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Mba an undue advantage in the election. They also accused him of multiple irregularities in his election, as well as his candidacy, and asked the court to limit his swearing-in as the state’s next governor. But in a ruling yesterday, the tribunal dismissed the application for lack of legal basis and described the matter as “novel” requiring testing.
