Wada’s Petition Hearing Stalled At Kogi Gov. Election Tribunal

Hearing in the petition filed by the former Governor of Kogi State challenging the election of Governor Yahaya Bello has been stalled following objections by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Governor.

At the proceedings on Tuesday, lawyers to Mr Idris Wada informed the Tribunal of their intention to present some documents which include ballot papers and result sheets used for the election.

The request was, however, opposed by the lawyers representing the APC and Governor Bello on the ground that the documents needed to be scrutinised.

With the objections upheld by the Chairman of the Tribunal, the petitioners were given time to perfect the presentation of the said documents.

Lawyers to the APC and Governor Bello insisted that the documents were not properly presented before the Tribunal.

Hearing of the petition has been fixed for April 11.
