The Kaduna State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has been inaugurated at the Kaduna High Court along Ibrahim Taiwo road.

The tribunal is headed by Justice I. M. Bako, while Khadi Adamu Usman and Justice Jude Obiora will serve as members.

Meanwhile, the pre-hearing of the petition filed by the People’s Democratic, PDP governorship candidate in the March 9th poll, Isa Ashiru is expected to begin on Tuesday, May 14th.

Ashiru is challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC for returning Governor Nasir El-Rufai, candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC as duly elected in the poll.

Ashiru in his petition alleged that the poll was characterised by massive rigging and irregularities as well as over voting in some parts of the state.

The PDP candidate said that there were documentary evidence to be presented before the tribunal to prove his claims. He prayed the tribunal to cancel the results of the poll in the affected areas.
