The governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Lafia, Nasarawa State, has sacked Governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress and declared David Ombugadu, the candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, as the duly elected governor of the state.
In a ruling delivered on Monday, two of the justices agreed that the election was won by the PDP while one judge dissented.
Governor Sule sought re-election for a second term but faced stiff opposition from Ombugadu and other candidates.
Sule polled a total of 347,209 votes to defeat his closest opponent, Ombugadu, who secured 283,016 votes.
However, the PDP filed a petition before the tribunal, challenging the outcome of the election on the grounds of irregularities and over-voting.
The tribunal upheld the PDP’s petition and nullified Sule’s election.
