BREAKING: Tribunal Strikes Out ADC Petition Against Gombe Governor Yahaya

The Gombe State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has struck out the petition filed by the African Democratic Congress (ADC) against Governor Inuwa Yahaya and his Deputy Manassah Daniel of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the ADC had challenged the declaration and return of Yahaya over alleged multiplicity and variations in the arrangement of names on the certificates of his deputy without accompanying affidavits, arguing that their ticket was rendered invalid.

However, the Tribunal has struck out the matter, saying it was a pre-election matter and that the deputy had met the minimum certificate requirement to run.

The ADC also alleged instances of corrupt practices and massive vote buying, but the Tribunal struck out these allegations for lack of proof.
