Faleke, accompanied by Mohammed Audu, son of the late Abubakar Audu, and lawyers, submitted the petition to the clerk of the tribunal at about 12.20 p.m. in Lokoja, yesterday.

Hundreds of party members and supporters converged on the state High Court premises, venue of the tribunal, to witness the event.
