A petition was file against Saraki earlier by his former opponent the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) candidate, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, claiming he won the March 28 election.

Chairman of the three-man tribunal, Justice Josiah Majebi, in his two-hour ruling, dismissed the PDP candidate’s petition for lack of merit, competence and substance.

Justice Majebi said the petitioner failed to establish any fact that there were malpractices in wards in Ilorin South, Ilorin East and Asa local governments, adding that the demand for the cancellation of the results was not tenable.

He held that the petitioner failed to prove his case that the election, which produced Senator Saraki, was characterised by malpractices.
