Reports from the North-Central say the Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Jos, the Plateau State capital, has affirmed the victory of Mr. Simon Lalong of the All Progressives Congress, consequently quashing the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate Gyang Pwajok.

Mr. Pwajok has been challenging the victory of Governor Lalong since the latter was declared winner of the April 11 gubernatorial election by INEC, alleging widespread irregularities, violence and non-compliance with electoral guidelines.

It is not immediately clear whether Mr. Pwajok has directed his legal team to appeal the verdict, but political analysts tell Happenings that will most likely be the ultimate decision of the PDP candidate.

More details later…
