The Supreme Court has fixed August 31, 2020, for the ruling in the appeal filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Musa Wada.

Mr. Wada is challenging the election victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Yahaya Bello as the Governor of Kogi State.

Wada lost his appeal before the Court of Appeal and resorted to present his case in the apex case.

Wada claims that the election that brought in Mr. Bello as governor of the state was riddled with serious electoral infractions.

On the same issue, the apex court also dismissed the suit of PDP challenging the election of Yahaya Bello.

In a separate motion, PDP had insisted that its candidate won the November 16, 2019 governorship election.
