Kogi Election Petition Tribunal: Faleke loses at tribunal, heads for Appeal Court

The Kogi State governorship election tribunal, sitting in Abuja, has upheld the election of Governor Yahaya Bello as the duly elected governor of Kogi State.

 The panel concluded that the running mate to deceased All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in the November 21, 2015 election, James Faleke lacks the legal right to challenge the emergence of Governor Yahaya Bello.

 Mr. Bello was nominated by the APC to replace its late candidate, Mr. Audu.

Mr. Faleke ran as deputy governorship candidate with Mr. Audu and they were coasting to victory before Mr. Audu suddenly died.
