Murtala Ajaka Kogi

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to intervene in the ongoing election petition tribunal, as the party alleged attacks on witnesses from the central senatorial district of the state.

The Director of New Media, Muri/Sam Campaign Council/SDP in the last Kogi State Governorship Election, Isaiah Davies Ijele, made the call in a press statement issued on Wednesday.

The intervention, he noted, was imperative to ensure the safety and security of all individuals involved in the Kogi electoral tribunal case.

“A thorough investigation into the reported violence and intimidation is essential at this moment.


“We also call upon media houses to uphold journalistic integrity and professionalism in their reporting of the tribunal proceedings. Accurate and factual reporting is crucial for maintaining public trust in the democratic process.


“We cannot allow our democracy to be undermined by electoral fraud, violence, and the spread of misinformation. We urge all stakeholders to act swiftly and decisively to ensure a fair and transparent judicial process.


Counter-accusation has been witnessed in the ongoing Kogi electoral tribunal case currently being held at the National Judicial Institute in Abuja, involving the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and its candidate, Alhaji Yakubu Murtala Ajaka, as the petitioners, against the All Progressives Congress (APC), its candidate, Ahmed Usman Ododo, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as respondents.
