    THE Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has again dismissed the petition filed by the presidential candidate of the Hope Democratic Party (HDP), Ambrose Owuru, to declare him President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

    Justice Mohammed Garba delivered the ruling on Thursday.

    Justice Garba dismissed the petition on the ground that the petition raised issues that the tribunal lacked the powers to adjudicate on, Channels TV reports.

    The tribunal held that the petition of Owuru is unknown to law and lacks constitutional backing.

    The tribunal further said that the petition is an aberration that constitutes an abuse of court process.

    Owuru had in his petition claimed that the failure of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the Presidential Election on February 16 forced his party to conduct a referendum through which Nigerians elected him as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. (Dailypost)
