Guber: Peter Mbah knows fate tomorrow as Tribunal delivers judgment in Enugu

The Enugu governorship election petition tribunal is set to issue its decision on Thursday at 9:00 a.m.

With 46 petitions on its docket, the tribunal is at the center of one of the most active post-election legal battles.

These petitions cover a wide range of issues, with eight originating from gubernatorial elections and an additional 38 originating from state assembly elections.

Among the contentious matters that have gripped the attention of both legal pundits and the general public is the authenticity of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) discharge certificate presented by Peter Mbah, who was declared the winner of the election.

The opposition Labour Party had alleged that Mr Mbah failed to fulfil his mandatory youth service obligations before assuming a political post in 2003.

The broader issues surrounding Mr Mbah’s election victory also encompass fierce debates regarding the validity of the votes accrued during the electoral process. Furthermore, allegations of extensive electoral malpractice and rigging have cast a shadow over the outcome, particularly in Owo and Ugbawka.
