The Kogi State Governor, Yayaya Bello, who was also the APC candidate for the 2019 governorship election in the state has recorded another victory at the Governorship Election Tribunal.

This is as the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja dismissed the petition by the Action Peoples Party, (APP) against the Governor and his party.

Naija News understands the petition was dismissed on Friday for lack of merit.

The three-man panel of Justices, led by Ibrahim Kaigama, said the petitioners failed to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt and also awarded a N100,000 against the petitioners.

As previously reported by this online medium, the tribunal earlier in the week also dismissed the petition filed by another candidate, Barrister Natasha Akpoti of the Social Democratic Party, SDP for lacking in merit.

A cost of N600,000 was also awarded against her and her party.

Meanwhile, the tribunal has picked Saturday, 23rd May to rule in the petition jointly filed by Engr. Musa Wada and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP challenging Bello’s victory in the November 16th poll.
