Jime is challenging the results declared in Buruku, Gboko, Guma, Gwer East, Gwer West, Konshisha, Kwande, Logo, Ukum, Ushongo and Vandeikya.
The petitioners other grounds were that Gov. Ortom was not duly elected by majority of lawful votes and that his election was invalid by reason of non- compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 as amended.
Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Henry Olusiyi, adjourned further hearing until Aug. 8, for INEC to open its defence.
