ALL FACTS NEWSPAPER, AFNEWS had reported that the three member panel led by justice J.T.D Gwadah, dismissed all the petitions of the PDP and her governorship candidate, Chief Okey Ahiwe for lacking merit.
Speaking to AFNEWS immediately after the judgement, the representative of the PDP/Ahiwe’s legal team, Barrister Chukwuemeka Nwogu Esq, noted that the tribunal has discharged its duties in line with the law and the constitution, however, they will wait until they get the judgment, study it, consult with the PDP/Ahiwe (clients), before determining their next line of action.

” most likely, we will be taking constitutional steps. When we get the judgment, we take a decision” Nwogu stated.
