The National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Makurdi has struck out the petition filed by the senatorial candidate of the Advance Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA), Alhaji Usman Abubakar, popularly known as Young Alhaji, challenging the election of Comrade Abba Moro of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Chairman of the tribunal, Justice A.A. Adeleye struck out the case following Young Alhaji’s application for withdrawal brought before the court by his counsel, Bem Aboho.
Adeleye averred that after a careful consideration of the application and the accompanying processes, the court decided to strike out the petition because all the parties (petitioners and the respondents) in the case had no objection to the application.
Earlier, the counsel to the petitioner, Aboho, had told the court that his client and the second petitioner, APDA, were no longer desirous of prosecuting the petition.
