Supreme court has upheld the election of Governor Yahaya Bello as Kogi state governor.
The apex court on Monday dismissed the appeal filed on five grounds by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Musa Wada against Bello’s victory.
In his appeal, Wada had claimed that the November 16, 2019, governorship election in the state, was riddled with serious electoral infractions; rigging and over-voting.
The former PDP governorship candidate also claimed that Bello didn’t secure the highest vote.
However, the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, other members of the panel like Justices Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, Sylvester Ngwuta, Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, Inyang Okoro, Amina Augie, and Uwani Abba-Aji dismissed the appeal.
