Ruling that only the election petition tribunal had the jurisdiction to hear the cases before it, the Judge allowed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to proceed with the conduct of its supplementary election in the state, scheduled for December 5.
According to him, “Only the election petition can entertain this case. The court does not have the affirmation to make definitive pronouncements.”
