Breaking: Tribunal Rejects LP’s Petition Against Fubara’s Victory


LP: The Rivers State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, situated in Abuja, has delivered its verdict, rejecting the petition brought forward by Beatrice Itubo, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Rivers State.

The petition had challenged the victory of Simnalayi Fubara from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the closely contested March 18 governorship election.

Simnalayi Fubara emerged victorious in the election with an impressive 302,614 votes, comfortably defeating Tonye Cole of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who secured 95,274 votes.


The tribunal’s decision came after a petition was jointly filed by the Labour Party and APC candidates, both contesting Fubara’s victory in the hotly contested election.

Following the rigorous examination of final written addresses and compelling arguments from all concerned parties, the tribunal, presided over by Justice Cletus Emifonye, delivered its verdict on Monday. The tribunal concluded that the Labour Party’s petition lacked merit and failed to substantiate the allegations made against the election’s outcome.
