Enugu tribunal declares Peter Mbah as legitimate governor

The Enugu governorship election petitions tribunal has declared Peter Mbah as the rightful governor of the state.

The ruling came after the tribunal dismissed allegations brought by the Labour Party (LP) concerning over-voting and the alleged bypassing of the Biometric Verification Authentication System (BVAS).

The tribunal’s decision, delivered on Thursday afternoon, September 21, 2023, reaffirmed that Peter Mbah secured his position as the governor of Enugu State through a majority of lawful and valid votes cast during the election.
