A group known as Project Kogi Development (PKD), has demanded for the sacking and prosecution  of the Secretary, Kogi Election Petition Tribunal , KEPT, Mr Mike David for his alleged complicit in the out of time filing of petitions.
In a press conference addressed by the president of the group, Mr. Kamar Toyin urged the president of court of Appeal to ask the secretary to explain what court files was doing in his private residence instead of keeping the important documents at the court registry.
According to him, ” it is a thing of concern to us that since the declaration of results, the peace of the state has been threatened by the opposition SDP in kogi state”.
 He noted that the opposition party, SDP, were always involved in gruesome killings in the state, especially in Koton-karfe and other part of the state before, during and after Governorship election but said surprisingly, the security did not arrest Murtala Ajaka and his deadly gangs.
Hon. Kamar also emphasized that recent events in Kogi regarding election litigations witnessed the opposition party, SDP threatening, harassing INEC commissioner, Police commissioner, other security agencies, judges, and undermining the judiciary.
The president emphasized that the group would not tolerate any attempts by politicians to intimidate court staff and judges.
He also called on the president of court of Appeal to take appropriate disciplinary action against the erring secretary of the kogi state tribunal panel who has compromise and violated the law by treating official petition in his residence where there is registry to transact Administrative business? The tribunal secretary was busy doing the dirty business of the opposition party, SDP and it’s violent group.
” The secretary forgot the fact that the world has become very technical and confirmation of payment via Remita is just a click away. All the material facts before us is that no payment via Remita platform by the SDP before the expiration of the legally stipulated filing period. He can be compromised but he can’t compromise Remita, he stressed.
“We are calling on the authorities to interrogate the secretary of the kogi state governorship tribunal panel to ask why he decided to take the documents to his private residence, instead of him keeping them at the court registry.
The KDK, Hon. Kamar further said, according to the provision of section 134 of the Electoral Act, the SDP has no petition before the panel. The party might have a petition with the secretary which was given to him, ostensibly on Monday, 4th December, 2023.
Hon. Kamar said he believe the president of the court of Appeal and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, will be Honourable enough to do what is Fair, Just, and Legal.
