The Kogi State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, sitting in Abuja, has struck out the petition filed by the Action Peoples Party (APP), challenging the election of Alh. Ahmed Usman Ododo as the Governor of Kogi State in the November 11, 2023 governorship election in the state.

This followed the withdrawal of the petition by Counsel to the Petitioner, Daniel Edeachi, Esq.
