APPEAL COURT UPHOLDS BELLO’S ELECTION

The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday upheld the election of Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello. A five-member panel led by Justice Jumai Hannatu Sankey held that the appellant, James Faleke, failed to substantiate his allegation that Bello was not qualified for the election.

Justice Sankey, who read the lead judgment, resolved all the six issues determined against the appellant.

The panel consequently upheld the judgment of the election tribunal and dismissed Faleke’s appeal.
