AWKA-Anambra State National and State Assemblies' Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Awka, Tuesday, upheld the election of Chief Emeka Idu of Accord Party as the member representing Onitsha 11 constituency in the State House of Assembly.

In a unanimous judgment, the three-member tribunal, headed by Justice Y. A. Adesanya, dismissed the petition filed against the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and Idu by the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and its candidate, Rev Emeka Nwamkpa, for failing to prove the allegations against the election of the Accord Party candidate.
