The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) and its governorship candidate in Kogi State, Dr. Abdullahi Y. Bayawo, have appealed the judgment of the Kogi State governorship election petition tribunal which upheld Governor Usman Ododo’s victory in last year’s election in the state.
The panel on May 27 dismissed the petitions filed by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate, Murtala Ajaka, and other flag bearers in the election for lack of merit.
In a 15-ground appeal, the petitioners asked the Appeal Court to overturn the tribunal’s decision which dismissed their petition on the outcome of the election.
They listed several errors made by the tribunal in its judgment, including the failure to consider critical evidence and the misdirection of law.
The PRP and its candidate are dissatisfied with the tribunal’s findings on issues such as pre-filling of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) forms, the use of non-authentic and irregular voters’ registers, and the failure to comply with the constitutional requirement of a winner scoring 25% in at least 2/3 of the local government areas.
