The State and National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal in Enugu has given petitioners and respondents 14 days each to prove their case as such petitions would elapse by Oct. 13.

The Chairman of the tribunal, Justice M.O. Adewara, gave the order on Tuesday during pre-trial reports and urged the parties to adhere to the 14-day arrangement as the tribunal was out of time.

Adewara said the tribunal had only 11 days left to deliver its judgment after the 14 days, adding that they will treat all the cases at their disposal within the allowed time.

The pre-trial report showed that no party had withdrawn from the tribunal and they all relied on the documents submitted as evidence to prove their cases.

The report also showed that no additional witnesses were required by the parties and the witnesses listed in the petition would not adopt their written addresses as required by the law as evidence.

The petitions include the one from the All Progressive Grand Alliance Party (APGA) candidate, Mr. Okafor Nwabueze against Sen. Gilbert Nnaji of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) for Enugu East senatorial zone.

Others are the ones filed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Mr. Magnus Ozongwu against Johnbull Nwagwu of PDP for Udi North state assembly seat and Ifeanyi Asogwa of APC against Ikechukwu Ugwuegede of PDP for the Nsukka/Igbo Eze South federal constituency.

The tribunal adjourned to Aug. 14 to commence hearing in the matters. (NAN)
