    The Tribunal led by Justice Susan Oji, ruled that the petitioners, Senator Mohammed Hassan and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) failed to prove their claims that Bomoi did not win with majority of lawful votes and that the election was held without substantial compliance with the Electoral Act.

    Justice Oji agreed with Bomoi’s lawyer, Akinlolu Kehinde (SAN) that the preponderance of testimony by the petitioners’ witnesses are laced with hearsay evidence, to which the tribunal could not attach any probative value.

    “In the final analysis, I hold that the petitioners failed to prove their case. The petition is hereby dismissed,” Justice Oji said.
