Petition No EPT/AN/HR/14//2023 filed by Hon Ifeanyichukwu Ibezi & APC against Hon Uchenna Harris Okonkwo & LP has today been dismissed on all grounds. In a succinct judgment delivered today, 8/9/23, The Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Awka held that the Petitioners (Ifeanyichukwu Ibezi & APC) failed to prove any of the grounds for the Petition as follows;
(1) that there were over voting in 14 polling units in Idemili North and South Federal Constituency, on 25/2/23.
(2) that there were no elections in 50 polling units in Idemili North LGA on 25th February 2023.
(3) that the number of registered voters in the 50 polling units where they alleged there were no elections was over 33,000, a number far above 8,840 votes by which Hon Uchenna Harris Okonkwo who scored the total of 26,840 votes won the election.
Consequently the Petition was dismissed.
