The court on Friday affirmed that Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) won the November 11 governorship election in the state.

In an unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay, the three-man panel of the tribunal held that the election of Hope Uzodinma as the governor of the state complied with the provisions of the electoral act, 2022.

The tribunal further held that the Labour Party in its petition failed to prove the allegation of over voting and non compliance as alleged.
