The Kogi State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal on Saturday in a split judgment upheld the election of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.

The majority judgment delivered by Justice Kashim Kaigama upheld Bello’s election on the grounds that the petitioners failed to prove allegations of rigging and other malpractices in the November 16, 2019 governorship election.

Justice Kaigama accordingly dismissed the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his governorship candidate, Engineer Musa Wada, with a cost of N500,000 each in favour of the respondents.
