Why Natasha Akpoti Should Withdraw Her Petition In Supreme Court Against Gov Yahaya Bello (OPINION)

As the governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP) for November 16 governorship election in Kogi State, Barrister Natasha Akpoti, takes her legal battle to nullify Governor Yahaya Bello's election to Supreme Court, there is need for stakeholders in the State especially from Kogi Central to wade in and advice her to withdraw her case that is capable of nullifying Yahaya Bello's election. 

There is no doubt that Akpoti has a good case at the Supreme Court. She is praying for the Supreme Court to nullify the election of Yahaya Bello on the ground that her party was not included in the ballot paper and ballot sheets of the election and also prayed for the election to be nullified on the alleged age falsification of Yahaya Bello's deputy, Edward Onoja. 

Natasha Akpoti and Yahaya Bello are both Ebira from Kogi Central senatorial district, the traditional ruler of the land, Ohinoyi of Ebirland should wade in and settle the illustrious son and daughter of Ebiraland.  

Why Natasha Akpoti Should Withdraw Her Case Against Yahaya Bello

 If the apex Court answered the prayer of Natasha Akpoti and nullified the election of Governor Yahaya Bello, it will definitely order for fresh election in the state and Natasha Akpoti's party doesn't have the structure to win governorship election in Kogi State presently. 

It will be bad for her political career if he succeeded in nullifying the election of Yahaya Bello and end the chance of Ebira people to rule Kogi for eight years. 

At the end, Akpoti might end up fighting for the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Musa Wada which will not be good for her political career in Ebiraland.
