Speaking to journalists in his Abuja resident, Faleke said although he would have to consult with his lawyers, he will be appealing Justice Halima Mohammed’s ruling.
Faleke said:” I watched the verdict of the tribunal on TV, one thing I can say is that, the judge’s have delivered their own judgement, I will consult my lawyers, upon which I am very certain that we will appeal the judgment.”
“I am not a lwayer but I can say that it (the judgment) is not in tune with our constitution,” Faleke said.
He said the court is wrong to have ruled that he had no locus standi in the case.
However, a non perturbed Faleke asked his guest to find something to eat.
“Please there is food, find something to eat. We are celebrating!” he said.
A Federal Capital Territory Court on Monday, June 6, ruled dismissed an application by Faleke challenging APC’s nomination of Yahaya Bello as governor of Kogi state.
The party following the death of it former flag bearer for the state, Abubakar Audu had asked Faleke to stand in as a running mate to Bello.
Meanwhile, Kogi state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has hailed the judgement of the election petitions tribunal sitting in Abuja, which in a unanimous decision today, upheld his victory at the poll.
He said the decision of the Bench Lords has further justified his election as the governor of Kogi state, saying the victory belongs to the people of Kogi state, our party APC and lovers of democracy across the nation.
