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.

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