Anxiety As Anambra Election Petitions Tribunal Moves To Kwara State
The Anambra governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has been moved from Awka, the state capital to Ilorin, the Kwara state after just one sitting.
Mr Surajo Gusau, Secretary of the Election Petitions Tribunal disclosed this in Awka on Tuesday.
Gusau said the movement was effective Dec. 17 and that as he was talking the tribunal had already settled down in the Kwara state capital.
He however did not disclose the reasons for the relocation of panel sitting but said it was an administrative directive.
He said the Petition Tribunal had 12 cases before it apart from the one filed by Accord Party which was withdrawn on Dec. 9.
It would be recalled that the Tribunal was set up to hear petitions against the emergence of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance as winner of the Anambra guber election held on Nov. 6 and Nov. 9.
