Supreme Court sets 31st Aug. to deliver judgment on Gov. Bello’s victory in Kogi
The Supreme Court has picked Monday, 31st August 2020 as the date to deliver its ruling in the case filed by Musa Wada against the victory of Governor Yahaya Bello in Kogi State.
Naija News recalls Wada was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP while Bello contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the 2019 governorship polls.
Bello of the APC was declared the winner of the November 16 election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
According to the results, Gov. Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress, APC polled 406,222 votes to defeat other contestants including Engr. Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP who got 189,704 votes.
However not satisfied with the declaration, Wada and the PDP headed to the election petition tribunal to challenge Bello and APC’s victory at the polls but have so far been unsuccessful in turning the tides in their favour at both the tribunal and appeal court stages of the petition.
The matter is currently before the Supreme Cout and the apex court has now picked 31st August 2020 to deliver its judgment.
