Onjeh through his lawyer Adetunji Oso urged the court to set aside the decision of the tribunal.
He said the court erred when it held that the papers tendered by his client were mere documentary hearsay.
Mark, PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), however, while adopting their briefs, urged the Court of Appeal to dismiss the appeal for lacking in merit.
