The Court of Appeal in Abuja has dismissed the appeal filed by the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Dr. Umar Ardo, against the election victory of Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The judgement delivered by Justice Ugochukwu Ogaku upheld the decision of the Adamawa State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which had earlier dismissed Ardo’s petition challenging Fintiri’s victory.

“This appeal is bereft of merit. The decision of the Tribunal dismissing the Petition is hereby affirmed,” the court held.

In the petition, Ardo had alleged that there were widespread irregularities and non-compliance with the Electoral Act during the 2023 governorship election. However, both the tribunal and the Court of Appeal found no merit in these allegations.
