Tension in Anambra as tribunal delivers judgment on Obiano, Obidigbo suit

There is currently tension in Anambra State as the State governorship election petition tribunal commences delivery of judgment on the suit filed by Chief Chike Obidigbo, challenging the victory of Chief Willie Obiano as governor of Anambra State. The tension in the state stems from the fact that citizens are not sure yet where the pendulum will swing as Obidigbo has been exuding confidence of his emergence. The petitioner had approached the court seeking to be declared the candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA), on the grounds that he is the rightful candidate of the party, having emerged from the Maxi Okwu faction. As at the time of filing this report, the Justice Bello Ishaq led tribunal had commenced execution of judgment. Our reporter gathered that there is water tight security at the Anambra State Judiciary Complex venue of the tribunal sitting. Only lawyers and few journalists were allowed access to the court room, while politicians and other supporters are thoroughly searched before they are allowed into the court premises.
