Just In: Will Supreme Court Sack Yahaya Bello? Kogi Governor Knows Fate in Few Hours

There is tension in Kogi state political circles as the Supreme Court will in few hours decide on the political logjam rocking in the state for some months now.
The Supreme Court will in the next few hours determine the fate of the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.
While there are five appeals against the Court of Appeal rulings, in summary, the Supreme Court will decide if Mr. Bello should continue as Kogi governor or vacate office.
One of those appeals is by the immediate past governor of the state and candidate of the opposition PDP, Idris Wada. Another is by James Faleke who was the deputy governorship candidate to late Abubakar Audu who died before the final announcement of results by the electoral commission, INEC.
While the ruling APC replaced late Mr. Audu with Mr. Bello, Mr. Faleke believes he should have automatically become the party’s governorship candidate and eventual governor after the death of his principal
Whatever verdict by the Supreme Court today will be the final decision on the controversy that has lingered for several months.
Governor Bello’s special adviser on media and strategy, Abdulmalik Abdulkareem, had earlier expressed confidence that they will come out victorious.
“We are not shaken, we know that the rule of law will take its course, God willing, we are set to make a legal record that will become a precedent.
“The Nigerian legal system is developing and we are happy that our case is adding impetus to the Nigerian judiciary,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of Wada, his special adviser, media and strategy, Jacob Edi, restated his principal’s belief in the judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court. His words:
“We expect to win the case, we have always had confidence in the judiciary and we have kept advancing to the last stage, that is why we are at the Supreme Court. The judiciary is the ultimate for the common man.
“The framers of the constitution are aware that at every stage of the case newer interpretations will come up. We believe that the Supreme Court will look deeper into the case, particularly with the minority judgment.
“Whatever decision taken will deepen democracy as the case is novel, it will be a landmark judgment. We have confidence in the independence of the Supreme Court.”
