The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed the judgement of the election petition tribunal in Nasarawa that nullified the victory of Abdullahi Sule. 

On Monday, the tribunal upturned the election of Sule as governor of Nasarawa and declared David Ombugadu, candidate of PDP as the winner of the March 18 poll.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Sule, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of the election with 347,209 votes.

Ombugadu, according to INEC, came second with 283,016 votes.


In their ruling, two of the justices of the tribunal led by Ezekiel Ajayi, said Ombugadu won the election, while one judge dissented.

In a statement congratulating Ombugadu, the PDP described the judgement as an “unfaultable verdict”.

The PDP  described the verdict as a “victory for democracy and the triumph of the will” of the people of Nasarawa “in their quest to liberate their state from the stranglehold of corrupt, oppressive and manipulative forces”.


“The spontaneous jubilation across Nasarawa State and other States of the federation shows that the judgment of the Tribunal is in line with the aspiration and choice of the majority of the people of Nasarawa State in their resolve to return Nasarawa State to the path of peace and economic development on the platform of the PDP,” the statement issued by Debo Ologunagba, PDP spokesperson, reads.

“Our Party commends the Nasarawa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal for its courage in upholding the Will of the people and showing that indeed, the Judiciary is the last hope of the common man.

“This Tribunal judgment points to the fact that the outcome of a proper application of the laws, rules and facts by the judiciary, as witnessed in this case, will always confirm and validate the will of the people.”

The PDP asked the people of Nasarawa to remain united, peaceful and alert as a “new dawn breaks” in their state.
