Residents of Nasarawa have flocked to the streets to celebrate the tribunal decision that overturned Abdullahi Sule’s election as State Governor on behalf of the All Progressives Congress.
According to earlier reports from Anaedoonline.ng, the Nasarawa State governorship election petition tribunal found David Ombugadu, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, to be the person lawfully elected by the State after voiding Sule’s election victory.
Two justices ruled on Monday that Ombugadu won the election, with one judge dissenting.
