ASABA—THE National and State Houses of Assembly Election Petition Tribunal, Panel 2, sitting in Asaba, yesterday, dismissed the petition against the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Chief Monday Igbuya.
Chief Felix Anirah, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, had dragged Chief Igbuya to the tribunal challenging his election to represent Sapele constituency in the House of Assembly. Dismissing the petition, the tribunal chairman, Justice Bamjoko, said Chief Anirah lacked the locus standi to challenge the election of Chief Igbuya. Bamjoko said the petitioner failed to prove his allegations of over voting, non- compliance with the electoral act and fraud.
