 Supreme Court To  Hear  Appeals Against Bello’s Re-Election Tuesday

The Supreme Court has issued notices scheduling the hearing of three appeals challenging the election of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State for Tuesday.

It was gathered that two on the three appeals coming up for hearing were filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and the Socialist Democratic Party along with their respective candidates to challenge Bello’s victory at the November 16, 2019 poll.

The three appeals coming up for hearing at the Supreme Court on Tuesday are against the July 4, 2020 judgments of the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal which affirmed the victory of Bello in the November 16, 2019 governorship election in the state.

In separate judgments of the Court of Appeal, all of which were unanimous, the five-man panel of the court led by Justice Adamu Jauro had dismissed the four appeals for lacking in merit.

The appeals dismissed were filed by PDP, SDP, Democratic People’s Party, and Actions Peoples Party.

Three of the appellants were however able to file their appeals at the Supreme Court within the time stipulated by law.
