Victor Adoji, Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, had challenged the return of Senator Isah on the grounds that the elections were cancelled in polling units where the PVCs collected were greater than the margin of win.

Mr. Adoji asked the tribunal to annul the election of Senator Isah and order for a supplementary election in the affected 94 polling units.
