The Tribunal, therefore, dismissed Faleke’s petition against Bello.
Faleke, the running mate of the initial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Abubakar
Audu, had gone to the Tribunal seeking his declaration as the valid candidate of the party for
the election and his declaration as Governor.
Faleke said with the death of Audu on the day the results of the initial election was being
announced, he should have stepped into the shoes of Audu.
