Enugu tribunal dismisses certificate forgery allegations against Peter Mbah


The Governorship Election Tribunal sitting in Enugu State has dismissed the certificate forgery allegation against Governor Peter Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The Tribunal, in a judgment on Thursday, held that the petitioner, Elder Christopher Agu of the Peoples Redemption Party, could not prove allegations of fraud against the respondent.

The petitioner had alleged that Mbah forged his National Youth Service Corps certificate and that there were irregularities in the election, including overvoting.

However, the Tribunal held that there was no evidence to support PRP’s claim that a forged certificate was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission. It also held that the issue was not contained in the petitioner’s affidavit.

Furthermore, the Tribunal also held that witnesses called by the petitioners could not specify the polling units where the elections were not held nor the results.

It concluded that the governorship election of March 18 and the return of Governor Peter Mbah as winner complied with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022.
