Court of Appeal Upholds Hyacinth Alia's Benue State Governorship Win

The Court of Appeal in Abuja affirmed Hyacinth Alia's victory as the governor of Benue State, dismissing the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Titus Uba. 

Uba contested the election results, citing irregularities such as alleged forgery involving Alia's deputy and the timing of Alia's nomination.

Titus Uba, representing the PDP, approached the appellate court seeking to overturn the tribunal's decision that validated Alia's election victory. 

Among Uba's claims were allegations of certificate forgery against Alia's deputy and procedural irregularities in the election process.

Despite Uba's contentions, the tribunal, presided over by Justice Ibrahim Karaye, dismissed the petition on the grounds of it being a pre-election issue and statute-barred. 

In the recent ruling by the Court of Appeal, led by Justice Onyekachi Aja Otisi, the panel maintained that Uba failed to substantiate the forgery allegations against Alia's deputy beyond reasonable doubt.
