Just In: Muri Ajaka loses at Tribunal, as court affirms Gov. Ododo’s election victory

Murtala Ajaka, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship candidate in the Kogi State November 11 gubernatorial election, has lost at the state Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, developing stories have confirmed.

The Kogi Governorship Election Petition Tribunal last week fixed May 27 to deliver judgment on the petition filed by the SDP and its governorship candidate, Muritala Ajaka, against the election victory of Governor Usman Ododo.
