The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has rejected the judgement of the governorship election tribunal which validated the election of Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia as governor of Benue State.

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Makurdi, on Saturday, dismissed the petition filed by the PDP and its governorship candidate, Titus Uba, against the election of Alia of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The tribunal ruled that the petition was incompetent.

The Benue State chapter of the PDP rejected the tribunal’s verdict in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Bemgba Iortyom.

The statement read, “After a review of the judgement with its team of lawyers, PDP believes that it does not meet the requirements of substantive justice and is not in alignment with extant electoral laws, guidelines and regulations.

” The party has accordingly directed its lawyers to appeal the judgement at the Court of Appeal, Abuja within the timeframe specified by law.

“Our great party urges its teeming supporters across the state to be calm and of good cheer in the faith that though the walk to justice may be long, the goal of reclaiming the Governorship mandate will surely be achieved in the end”.
