'Supreme court must do what is right on Kogi'

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), has deployed over 1, 000 personnel to Kogi State ahead of the Supreme Court judgement on the governorship election appeals on Tuesday.

Mr. Faleke, who was the running mate to the late Abubakar Audu in the governorship election of November 21, 2015, had appealed the decision of the Appeal Court, which upheld the election of Mr. Bello.

The court according to News 24 had on September 15 asked all parties in the matter to submit the authorities they cited during their arguments to assist it in writing the judgment.

Wada and Faleke appealed the decision of the Appeal Court which upheld the election of Yahaya Bello as governor.

In that position, as first runner up, providence beckoned on him to complete a race started by the victor of that primaries following sudden death.

According to the commission, Bello inherited the largest number of votes from leading candidate in the election, Prince Abubakar Audu who died shortly before his pronouncement as victor of the election.

The Supreme Court had delivered judgement on various appeals challenging the election of Bello.

He ordered the withdrawal of the governor's certificate of return and the conduct of a fresh election in the state.

"It also held that "... this right of the Political party to nominate and sponsor a candidate of its choice as the action is not subject to challenge except where not exercised judiciously which can include wrongful substitution of change of candidate...

"The Court further held that "... from the above the party's choice of the Respondent as its replacement to its late gubernatorial candidate can not legally be questioned or challenged by the Petitioner.

But Sankey, in a unanimous judgement on behalf of the seven-man panel of judges, held that: "Having listened to learned counsels in their respective briefs, I hereby hold that the appeal lacks merit".
