In a recent ruling, the Enugu State Governorship Election Tribunal affirmed Governor Peter Mbah’s victory in the March 18, 2023, governorship election. The decision was delivered by Justice Kudirat Akano, the Chairperson of the three-member tribunal panel.
The tribunal dismissed the allegations brought forward by Hon. Chijioke Edeoga of the LP, which claimed that Governor Peter Mbah’s NYSC discharge certificate was forged.
Justice Akano explained that Governor Mbah had not submitted his NYSC certificate to INEC as part of his qualification to run for the governorship office. He was already deemed qualified for the position without the NYSC certificate.
Furthermore, the tribunal found that the LP governorship candidate, Hon. Chijioke Edeoga, failed to provide admissible evidence to substantiate his claims that Governor Peter Mbah’s certificate was forged. Consequently, the tribunal upheld Governor Mbah’s victory in the election.
