The Supreme Court has upheld Governor Yahaya Bello’s re-election victory in the last governorship election in Kogi State.

In a unanimous judgment on Monday, a seven-man panel led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Ibrahim Tanko, dismissed the appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate, Musa Wada, on the grounds of lacking in merit.

The court, therefore, upheld the concurrent decisions of the tribunal and the appeal court that the petitioners failed to prove their claim that Mr Bello was not lawfully returned by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as the winner of the election held November 16, 2019.
