"An election tribunal on Tuesday dismissed the main opposition party's challenge over fraud claims in the April presidential election, revalidating the ruling party's win in Africa's most populous nation. The Congress for Progressive Change's election lawsuit failed to cast reasonable doubt on the results that handed victory to President Goodluck Jonathan about six months ago, said Judge Kumai Akaas, who led a panel of four judges that reached an unanimous decision."
