The Benue State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has upheld the election of Governor Hyacinth Alia of Benue state. 

In a unanimous decision read by the Chairman of the three-man panel, Justice Ibrahim Karaye held that the petition was a pre-election matter. 

Justice Karaye dismissed the petition on the grounds that the Tribunal lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the suit.
