The Benue South senatorial election from February 25 was upheld by the National and State Assembly Election Tribunal in Makurdi, Benue State. Senator Abba Moro is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Moro’s election had been challenged in court by Mr. Dan Onjeh, a candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The petitioner’s evidence was deemed “weak and porous” by the tribunal, however, and was so rejected.
Onjeh has responded to the news by criticizing the tribunal’s decision and asking his supporters to maintain calm.
He said his attorneys would review the ruling and provide him advice on what to do next.
A Makurdi-based election petition panel, according to Onjeh, recently rejected his appeal based on a misunderstanding of the law.
We have been there many times during the past 12 agonizing years, and we are not fazed by the landscape. After reviewing the ruling, our legal team will provide guidance on next steps.
But whatever the case may be, we always give God the glory. I’d also like to express my gratitude for the constant encouragement and prayer that you’ve offered me. Have a blessed day.
