The petitioners through their Counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), argued that if it is discovered that the governor did not qualify to contest the election, then the tribunal would have no need to enter further hearing on the main petitions, which they filed against the governor and the All Progressives Congress regarding the polls.
