The Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate in the November 16, governorship election in Kogi state, Engineer Musa Wada, on Saturday filed a petition at the Kogi State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja, challenging the declaration of Yahaya Bello as the winner of the election.

The petitioners are claiming that the election was characterized by irregularities, violence, ballot snatching and stuffing, and non-compliance with the electoral act, constitution and INEC’s guideline for the governorship.

Wada said on Saturday that what happened in Kogi was a charade and not an election, insisting that the All Progressives Congress with the aid of security agents, had a field day in rigging the election in favour of Bello.

He said, the violence that characterized the poll, ended up with the killing of a PDP women leader, Mrs. Salome Abu.

The Returning Officer for the election and Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Prof Ibrahim Garba had, while announcing the results, said Bello polled 406,222 votes to defeat his main challenger, Engr Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 189,704 votes.

As at the time of filing this report, the filed processes of the petition were being stamped by the staff of the tribunal secretariat with the aid of handset light as there was no power supply in the court premises.

The deadline for filing of the petition is 11:59 pm, Sunday, December 8, 2019.
