The Kogi State Governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja on Monday dismissed the petition filed the deputy Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in last November Governorship election in the state, James Falake, challenging the emergence and subsequent election of Yahaya Bello as Governor of the state.

A three-man panel led by Justice Halima Mohammed held that Faleke lacks locus standi to challenge Bello’s election having never been sponsored by his party as Governorship candidate in the November 21, 2015 election and the December 6, 2015 supplementary poll respectively.

The tribunal dismissed the petition for lacking in merit.
