Martin Apugo to Appeal Tribunal judgment

The All Progressive Congress APC candidate for House of Representatives, Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency at the 2019 election, Hon. Martin Ikechukwu Apugo says he will appeal the judgment of the election petition tribunal sitting in Umuahia.

Martin Apugo in a release after the judgment of the tribunal on Monday that dismissed his petition against Sam Onuigbo of Peoples Democratic Party PDP said the tribunal was bias in delivering its judgment.

In his petition Martin Apugo accused Sam Onuigbo of interfering with the election, collation, engineered massive rigging, vote buying and violence during the election, and also complained of complicity by the electoral umpire, INEC. But the tribunal dismissed the petition for want of competence.
