Tribunal strikes out case against Onofiok Luke

Tribunal strikes out case against Onofiok Luke
Jubilation has hit Nsit Ubium Local Government Area following the victory of Rt. Hon Onofiok Luke at the tribunal. The victory of the youth friendly lawmaker was being challenged by the APC candidate Barr Victor Akpan who claimed he was rigged out of the contest. 

The case brought by the defeated APC candidate in the April 11 legislative election was struck out on the basis that the petitioner filed his petition out of time which is a breach of the constitution and electoral Act 2010.

The tribunal, sitting at the customary court, Kubwa in Abuja therefore reaffirmed the victory of Barr Onofiok Luke who was voted massively by the people of Nsit Ubium State constituency on April 11 2015.
