Samson Okwu, representing Oju/Obi Federal Constituency of Benue, was declared by the election petitions tribunal in Markudi, Benue state, to have been validly returned. Okwu’s election won as a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate was challenged by Etukwu Onah, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate. Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, the tribunal chairman, said Onah’s witnesses contradicted themselves and that their testimonies were hearsay that are unreliable in law. She said the petition lacked merit.
