Tribunal rules that Yahaya Bello remains Kogi State governor, strikes out Faleke's case

The Kogi State Election Tribunal sitting today in Abuja ruled in favour of Yahaya Bello to remain the governor of the state. James Faleke who was then the running mate of Audu Abubakar earlier petitioned the court to declare him winner of the election following the demise of the governorship candidate during the collation of election results.

Justice Halima Mohammed of the Election Tribunal struck out Faleke’s case on the grounds that it lacked merit.
