Election tribunal: Anambra PDP, Reps candidate concede defeat at pre-trial

By Ugochukwu Alaribe

AWKA—First Anambra Election Petition Tribunal headed by Justice Nayai Aganaba, has expressed shock over the decision of candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Nnamdi Eze, to concede defeat to his opponent, Mr. Dozie Nwankwo, of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the March 28, 2015 election for Anaocha/Njikoka/Idumukofia Federal constituency.

PDP and Nnamdi Eze confessed that APGA’s Dozie Nwankwo actually won the election .

The dramatic concession, which elicited wide laughter in court, came up when the second and third respondents to the petition, Dr. Eze and PDP respectively, admitted that a polling unit by polling unit computation of all the valid votes clearly showed that Mr. Nwankwo won the election by a wide margin, hence he should have been returned elected.
