Alleged Double Voter’s Registration: Court Strikes Out Natasha Akapoti’s Case Against Kogi Governor
The Federal High Court in Abuja has on monday Jan 20th struck out Natasha Akpoti’s case against Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State for alleged double registration as without merit and baseless.
The court held that she lacks locus standi to institute the matter in the first place, and that no matter how sensational she may think it is, it has utterly failed to confer on the court any grounds to entertain it.
It will be recalled that Miss Akpoti, candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the 2019 Kogi State Gubernatorial Elections had approached the court to disqualify the Governor from the polls which he later won in spectacular fashion.
In his judgment this morning, Justice I. E Ekwo of Federal High Court 5, Abuja ruled the matter as dead on arrival.
