They held that the petitioner failed to prove his case as he could not tender before the tribunal any relevant document to prove a case of non-compliance as contained in the petition.

The tribunal also dismissed a petition from the All Progressive Congress (APC) filed by Senator Peter Nwaoboshi against Ned Nwoko. The petition was dismissed by the Tribunal and a cost of N500,000 awarded against the petitioner.
