A tribunal sitting at Owerri, the capital of in today’s ruling has dismissed petitions against by Action Alliance Party, Mr. Uche Nwosu, describing it as “incompetent”.

OduNews.com also gathered that the tribunal dismissed the petition of the All Progressives Grand Alliance and its governorship candidate Senator Ifeanyi Arareume for lacking in merit.

Three petitions were filed by the governorship candidates of the Action Alliance, All Progressives Congress, (APC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA),  asking the tribunal to nullify the election of Mr Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the ground that he was unlawfully declared as the governor of the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

As it stands now, two of these three petitions have been dismissed and Emeka Ihedioha remains the duly elected governor of Imo state.
