The deputy governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 21 election in Kogi State, James Faleke, on Tuesday filed a suit at the Federal High Court, Abuja, demanding his declaration as governor-elect, Premium Times reports.

It will be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission had declared the election inconclusive and ordered a supplementary election to hold on December 5.

Mr. Faleke had on Monday threatened to go to court following the adoption of Yahaya Bello by the APC national leadership as the governorship candidate of the party in the supplementary election.
