Ugonna Ozurigbo OZB beats Kingsley Echendu to the game of Politics
Hon. Ugonna Ozurigbo OZB won the battle between him and Kingsley Echendu,
The Election Petitions Tribunal in Owerri has struck out the petition brought before it by Kingsley Echendu of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) challenging the declaration of the immediate past Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Ugonna Ozurigbo, as the winner of the February 23 Nkwerre/Nwangele/Isu/Njaba Federal Constituency poll.
Hon. Ozurigbo who contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is very happy with the results of the petition. He however, called for Echendu to support him to move the constituency forward.
The judge criticized Echendu for claiming there was no election in some wards in the federal constituency and later claimed there were over accredited votes in the same wards.
In striking out the petition, the tribunal said there were glaring inconsistencies in the petitioner’s claims.
