AN EXAMINATION OF LAWS REGULATING ELECTION PETITIONS IN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS OF NIGERIA 

ABSTRACT

Today, its no doubt that election petition forms an intrinsic nature of our democratic setting as dispute and dissatisfaction are bound to arise from the conduct of election and as such dispute has to be resolved and determined by a competent judicial bodies in order to maintain the interest law and order in the Country. The Constitution in fairness to this has created a special adjudicatory bodies otherwise called the tribunals and these as well include the National Assembly Election Tribunal, the Governorship and Legislative House Election Tribunal and the Court of Appeal with exclusive jurisdiction on matters pertaining to the presidential election but left a vacuum that has to do with laws creating and regulating Local Government Election Tribunal. This has therefore led to a lot of idea as to the nature and forms of laws regulating election petition in some Local Government in Nigeria. The project therefore examines the various Laws regulating election petition in some Local Government of Nigeria. The project examines particularly Bauchi and Kwara States Laws regulating election petition in their Local Governments.
