01 December 2015, 20:46

Abuja - The deputy governorship flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 21 election in Kogi State, James Faleke, on Tuesday dragged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) before a Federal High Court, Abuja, reports NewsDay.

Faleke in the suit filed on his behalf by his counsel, Wole Olanipekun is praying the court to declare him the governor-elect of the state.

Faleke noted that the election was conclusive contrary to the claim by the commission that the poll was inconclusive.

The court papers were served on INEC on Tuesday afternoon.

Faleke has also written the commission, demanding the removal of his name as the running mate to Yahaya  Bello in the supplementary election.

Recall that Faleke had threatened to go to court following the adoption of Bello by the APC national leadership as the governorship candidate of the party in the supplementary election.

Bello’s adoption followed the death of the former governorship candidate, Abubakar Audu, on November 22.

The party immediately forwarded Bello’s name to INEC as replacement for Audu and that of Faleke as his running mate.
