Tribunal Chairman, Chairman Justice Kingsley Ojiako, in a judgement that lasted nearly fours, said the petitioners failed woefully to substantiate allegations that Governor Wike was not duly elected in the said election, that the exercise was marred by widespread violence and sharp practices.

The tribunal also awarded cost of N300,000 against the petitioners to be paid to each of the Respondents in the case, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor Wike.
