Hon James Abiodun Faleke, who was the running mate to the late Abubakar Audu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in November 21 governorship poll in Kogi State, has filed a petition before the State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.
Faleke, accompanied by Mohammed Audu, son of the late Abubakar Audu, and lawyers, submitted the petition to the clerk of the tribunal at about 12.20 p.m. in Lokoja, yesterday.
Hundreds of party members and supporters converged on the state High Court premises, venue of the tribunal, to witness the event.
However, the secretary of the tribunal, Mr Akanji Akinlabi, who received the petition, said the contents were yet to become public.
Hon. Faleke is challenging INEC decision which declared the election inconclusive. [NAN]
