Enugu State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has dismissed the petition of Chris Agu of the Peoples Redemption Party PRP against Peter Mbah for alleged forged National Youth Service Corps NYSC certificate, non-qualification, and corruption against Governor Mbah.
The Tribunal chaired by Justice Kudirat Murayo held that the petitioner failed to prove that the respondent did not possess the minimum requirement to stand for election.
According to Justice Murayo, there’s no evidence to support the claim that Mbah is not qualified to stand for the election.
On the issue of the plea bargain by Mbah, the tribunal averred that the exhibits presented by the petitioners did not show any plea bargain by the respondent.
The tribunal also held that to prove the issue of forgery, the petitioner must provide the original certificate and the forged one.
