Delivering the verdict virtually, the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Ezekiel Ajayi said the first, second and third respondents faired to prove their defense.

The tribunal ordered that the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, should retrieve the certificate of return from Sule and and issue another one to Dr. Ombugadu
