VICTORY!!! Tony Nwulu’s Election Affirmed by Tribunal

The election victory of Hon. Tony Nwulu, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) representing Oshodi-Isolo Federal constituency 2 of Lagos State has on Friday been upheld by the National Assembly election petition tribunal sitting in Ikeja, Lagos State.

The Petitioners, Akeem Muniru and the All Progressives Congress, approached the State and National Assembly Election Tribunal to nullify the election of Tony Nwulu on the grounds that he forged his credentials and for making a false declaration of oath in his INEC forms.

The Tribunal concluded that the names respectively stated in the academic credentials, WAEC result, INEC forms, and others as either belonging to Anthony Onyeulu Nwulu and having proved on oath that the compound name was added to reflect his extended family name which other members of the larger family use in addition to his father's name.

The Tribunal dismissed the petition with N50,000 cost to each of the Respondent (Nwulu, PDP, and INEC).
