Tribunal upholds election of Gov. Bello of Niger state
The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Minna on Wednesday upheld the election of Gov. Abubakar Bello of Niger state.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that Mohammed Umar Nasko, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) candidate in the March 9, Governorship Election and his party had dragged Bello who is the All Progressives Congress(APC) candidate), Bello and his deputy before the tribunal.
The petitioners alleged that the duo presented forged academic and declaration of age certificates to INEC, which was the crux of their case.
The chairman of the tribunal, Justice John Igboji, while delivering judgment, held that the petitioners merely pleaded facts without substantiating them with evidence.
Igboji also said that the tribunal cannot sit as an appellate court on an issue already decided by the Federal High Court.
“We have come to the inevitable conclusion that the petitioners have failed to establish their case as there is no shred of cogent evidence in proof of the allegation as required by relevant laws.
“In the circumstance we accordingly hold that the petitioners are not entitled to any relief sought, their petition being bereft of any merit and the petition is hereby dismissed for lack of merit.
“We, therefore, affirm and uphold the election of the first respondent, Alhaji Abubakar Bello as the duly elected governor of Niger state,” he said.
The tribunal also awarded N50, 000 cost each against the petitioners.
Reacting to the judgment, the Counsel to the petitioner, Mr Mohammed Ndayako, said the case was knocked out on technical grounds.
Ndayako noted that the petitioners would carefully study the judgment before deciding on the next line of action.
The Counsel to Bello, Jibrin Okutepa (SAN) described the judgment as “sound one”, saying it was a “great jurisprudential exposition”.
Also, Chief of Staff to the governor, Mr Ibrahim Balarabe said the judgment is a victory for democracy and the people of the state.
Balarabe called on the petitioners to join hands with the governor to move the state forward.

Niger: Tribunal reserves judgment in suit challenging Gov. Abubakar Bello’s election
NAN reports that Nasko, the PDP candidate in the March governorship election in the state, had dragged the APC candidate, Bello and his deputy Ahmed Ketso, before the tribunal.
Nasko alleged that Bello and Ketso presented forged academic and birth certificates to INEC.
The tribunal adjourned after all parties adopted their final written addresses.
The Chairman of the tribunal, Justice John Igboji, said that a date for judgment in the matter would be communicated by the secretariat to all parties in the matter.
Counsel to Bello, Mr Ojonimi Apeh, prayed the tribunal to dismiss the petition based on the evidence before it.
“Exhibits D1 and D2 has laid to rest the question of whether or not the respondents submitted forged documents.
“By the totality of the evidence in this case, we urge the tribunal to dismiss this petition,” he added.
On his part, counsel to the APC, J.J Usman prayed the court to discountenance the petitioner’s final address on grounds that it exceeded 40 pages in violation of the 2011 court practice direction.
Usman accused the petitioners of trying to reopen a case they lost at the Federal High Court and Court of Appeal.
“The tribunal and the Federal High Court have concurrent jurisdiction.
“The tribunal therefore cannot sit as appellate court on decision of the Federal High Court and Court Appeal,” he added.
In his own submission, counsel to INEC, Wole Akinjide, SAN, said case of forgery cannot be resolved without evidence from the institution whose certificate was allegedly forged.
Akinjide cited authorities to back his argument saying the fact that Bello’s certificate was carrying 1993 while he graduated in 1991 did not mean he forged it.
He further explained that certificates could be issued years after one had graduated.
In his response, counsel to the petitioners, Mohammed Ndayako, asked the tribunal to grant their prayers as the documents before it spoke for themselves.
2 senior counsel in heated argument over calling witness in Niger election tribunal
Two senior counsel appearing in the Niger Governorship Election Tribunal on Friday engaged in a heated argument over calling a witness, as Gov. Abubakar Bello, closed his case.
At the resumed hearing, counsel to Gov. Bello (the first respondent), Jibrin Okutepa, SAN, who had hinted at the last sitting on Thursday that he would be bringing his client to testify before the tribunal, said he was no longer calling any witness.
Okutepa noted that having thoroughly reviewed evidence presented by the petitioners and exhibits he tendered through PW1 during cross-examination there was no need for him to call any witness.
“The first respondent has waived the right to call our witness because there is nothing to call witness for and so we close our case,” he said
No sooner had he said that, that counsel to the petitioners, Mohammed Ndayako, rose to his feet and joked that the first respondent counsel was afraid of calling his witness.
However, the joke did not go down well with Okutepa who demanded an apology from Ndayako although he refused, insisting he was only joking like the two of them always do.
Ndayako said he attended law school in 1990 when the SAN was still in university and could not have meant what he said, to which the SAN replied, “this is another insult on me my lords and I won’t take it.’’
A visibly angry Okutepa then ordered Ndayako and other counsels sitting in the front row where he was seated to vacate their seats and go back.
“It would have been a different thing if he said my client was afraid to come but to say that I am afraid to call my witness is something I won’t take.
“I take strong exception to that and since he does not want to apologise, my lords I am left with no option but to ask him to leave here before I can continue,” he stressed.
Ndayako quickly went to sit behind when J.N Kalamu, one of the elderly counsels on his team and J.J Usman, counsel to APC (second respondent) intervened and apologised to the SAN on his behalf.
The quick intervention of the two counsels seemed to have calmed frayed nerves as Okutepa then got up and also apologised to the tribunal for the ugly incident after which he asked Ndayako to return to his seat.
At this point, Ndayako returned to his seat and apologised to Okutepa, saying he never intended the joke the way his senior colleague took it.
The chairman of the tribunal, John Igboji, thereafter told counsels that jokes were no longer allowed and they should strictly stick to their business in court.
The court session soon continued as the counsel to the APC, J.J Usman sought to tender some documents in evidence which was objected to by the petitioners’ counsel.
The matter was adjourned until June 29 for ruling on the admissibility of the documents.
NAN reports that Umar Nasko, the PDP candidate in the March governorship election in the state had dragged the APC candidate, Abubakar Bello and his deputy, Ahmed Ketso, before the tribunal for allegedly presenting forged academic and birth certificates to INEC.
PDP closes case at Niger election tribunal
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday closed its case at the governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Minna, Niger State.
At the resumed hearing on Thursday, counsel to PDP Mohammed Ndayako, presented Tanko Beji as his only witness.
Ndayako adopted his four witness statements on oath and asked the tribunal to use them as evidence in the petition.
He also tendered some documents which the witness mentioned in his statement on oath, after which he notified the court that his client was closing its case.
Counsel to the 1st respondent Jibrin Okutepa (SAN) said he would bring his client, Gov. Abubakar Bello, on Friday, to open their defence.
The chairman of the tribunal, Justice John Igboji, adjourned the matter until June 28, for the respondents to open their defence.
NAN reports that Umar Nasko, the PDP candidate in the March governorship election in the state, had dragged the APC candidate, Bello and his deputy Ahmed Ketso, before the tribunal.
Nasko alleged that the duo presented forged academic and birth certificates to INEC.
