APC accuses Bayelsa election tribunal of bias .

13 May 2016, 19:51

Yenogoa - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State has accused the Justice Kazeem Alogba led state election petition tribunal of bias and perversion of justice, reports Leadership.

The party was reacting to the rejection of the public demonstration of electronically generated evidence during the hearing, after the tribunal had earlier admitted it.

The evidence was to show whether or not the Southern Ijaw local government election was cancelled or postponed as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Justice Alogba had on Tuesday, while admitting the evidence, a DVD through a private television station, Channels, stopped ‎it from being played.

The party in a statement issued after the tribunal’s‎ decision, contended that keeping the evidence without demonstrating it was meant to cover some tracks.

The party said it was worried that a lower court of jurisdiction like a tribunal could flagrantly give a contrary decision on same issue that had been settled by the Supreme Court.
