Former Wajir governor Ahmed Abdullahi first challenged the election in Court sighting irregularities in the election and interference of the election ballots which led to its first nullification on 12th of January by Justice Alfred Mabeya.

Governor Abdi felt that the decision was unfair since the judge did not pay attention to important evidence that the Governor had.

The judge has ordered a by-election in line with election laws and the constitution.
