The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has the Borno Governorship Election Petition Tribunal to order a fresh election in the state.
The NNPP is challenging the re-election of Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno.
The NNPP in a petition argued that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) omitted the name of Umar Alkali, its governorship candidate, and the party logo on the list of contestants cleared for the election in Borno.
The party also sought an order nullifying the election and directing INEC to conduct a fresh governorship election in Borno that will include Alkali as the candidate of the NNPP.
Secretary of the tribunal, Mr. Taiwo Adediji, also confirmed that the tribunal received 10 petitions for the National Assembly election comprising three for the Senate and seven for the House of Representatives.
