• As party sacks state chairperson

By Sunday Ani

The Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Enugu State has granted the African Democratic Party (ADP) leave to inspect all the electoral materials used in the conduct of March 18 governorship election in Enugu State.

The leave was granted to the party’s governorship candidate in Enugu, Nnamdi Omeje, on March 27.

Omeje is currently challenging the election results that produced the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter MBA as the Enugu State Governor elect in the court, on grounds of regularity, intimidation, over voting and non compliance with the use of Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).
