Faleke Challenges INEC’s Declaration Of Kogi Election As Inconclusive Before Tribunal

James Faleke, running mate to late Abubakar Audu of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Nov. 21 governorship poll in Kogi State, has filed a petition at the State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.

Faleke is challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC), decision which declared the election inconclusive.

Faleke was accompanied by Mohammed Audu, son of Abubakar Audu, and lawyers, when he submitted the petition to the clerk of the tribunal at about 12.20 p.m. in Lokoja on Monday.

Faleke told newsmen that he was confident justice would be done in the matter.

He said he challenged INEC’s decision in declaring the election inconclusive when the result showed that by all standards the election was concluded and won by the APC ticket of Audu and Faleke.

Audu’s son, Mohammed told newsmen that his support for Faleke’s decision to challenge INEC’S decision was in line with the decision of elders and family of his late father.
