The Imo State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has upheld the election of Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as Imo state governor for the second term.

In a judgment on Friday, in Abuja, the three-member tribunal, in a unanimous decision, dismissed the petition by the Labour Party (LP) and its candidate, Athan Achonu.

In the lead judgment by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay, the tribunal held that Uzodinma’s election as Imo state governor complied substantially with the provisions of the Electoral Act.

The tribunal held that the petitioner failed to prove their allegations of over-voting and non-compliance to the Electoral Act as required.
