Kogi guber: Tribunal affirms Ododo’s election

The Kogi State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has affirmed the election victory of Gov. Usman Ododo of All the Progressives Congress (APC).

The three-member panel, sitting in Abuja, on Monday, held that the petition against the victory was bereft of substance and accordingly dismissed.

The tribunal headed by Justice Ado Birnin-Kudu, further held that the petitioners; the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and its candidate, Murtala Ajaka, failed to prove the allegations of over-voting and non-compliance with the Electoral Act, 2022 in the petition.

The panel, in a unanimous, decision ruled that all the witness evidence filed before it were incompetent and full of inconsistencies.
