Kogi state election tribunal upholds election of Yahaya Bello as state governor
Faleke had asked the tribunal to nullify Yahaya's election and declare him governor since he was the running mate of Audu who suddenly died hours before they were to be declared winners of the state governorship election in November last year. APC had nominated Yahaya after Audu died.
The Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Halima Mohammed, in upholding Yahaya's election, threw out Faleke's petition for lacking in merit.
