The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, is in the mood of celebration after winning his opponent, Musa Wada, at the governorship election tribunal.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate Musa Wada, had filed a case against the declaration of Bello who belongs to the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the state’s November 16 governorship election.
The three-man panel of judges in a unanimous judgment ruled that Wada’s petition lacked merit, asking him to pay N500,000 as costs to the APC and INEC for his frivolous claims.
Some Nigerians are not surprised by the judgement and have taken to their social media pages to share their opinion.
Congratulatory messages are pouring in for the governor who is currently trending on the popular microblogging app, Twitter.
According to Akoje Kevin, the tribunal’s verdict is a memorable way to end the Ramadan and usher in a glorious Eid celebration in which he furthered prayed for the good of Kogi State and Federal republic of Nigeria.
