The National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal for Anambra State has declared Tony Nwoye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the winner in a petition brought against the election of Peter Madubueze of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

A judgement delivered by Justice Nayai Aganaba in Awka today restores Mr. Nwoye as the duly elected candidate for the House of Representatives for Anambra East and West constituency.

Mr. Nwonye had approached the tribunal asking it to set aside the election of the APGA candidate because the elections had been rigged in several polling units in his strongholds at Nsugbe Ward I and ll in Anambra East local government area. The tribunal sided with Mr. Nwoye and declared him winner by  awarding him 3,003 votes from Nsugbe “Ward l” that was initially denied him during the April 11 National and State Assemblies elections in Nigeria (Sahara Reporters)
