The election tribunal in Kaduna has dismissed a petition challenging the reelection of Nasir El-Rufai as the Kaduna State Governor.

The chairman of the tribunal, Ibrahim Bako, read the ruling of the three-member panel on Monday afternoon.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate, Isa Ashiru, challenged Mr El-Rufai’s victory at the tribunal.

The tribunal struck out the petition for lack of substantial evidence by the opposition.

In his reaction, the PDP chairman in Kaduna, Hassan Hyet‎, said the party will meet with its lawyers to determine their next of action.
