Benue State gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last general elections, Prince Terhemen Tarzoor has gone to the Supreme Court to appeal the decision of the Court of Appeal.
Tarzoor in a nine grounds notice of appeal signed by J.O. Adesina, SAN and filed on the 26th November 2015 at the Apeal Court, Makurdi Division for onward transmission to the apex court, expresses dissatisfaction with the entire ruling of the lower court in his appeal.
It would be recalled after the April 28 governorship election in the state which went in favour of the All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, Samuel Ortom, Tarzoor had gone to the governorship election tribunal and the Court of Appeal in Makurdi which variously held verdicts in favour of the respondents, Samuel Ortom, the All Progressives Congress and Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
A member of the legal team to Tarzoor, G L Usongo Esq who spoke to our correspondent in Makurdi yesterday after filing the appeal, disclosed that highlights of the grounds were to the effect that; the burden of proving the primaries of APC was squarely, on APC and not Tarzoor as “erroneously” held by the court of appeal.
He stated amongst other things that “assuming the burden was on him, he conveniently discharged it by proving clearly that the APC in Benue conducted no primaries to elect any candidate for the polls.”
