JUST IN: Supreme Court Upholds Akeredolu’s Victory

Supreme Court has upheld the victory of Oluwarotimi Akeredolu in the 2020 Ondo gubernatorial election.

Gatekeepers News reports that the Supreme Court has upheld the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s Oluwarotimi Akeredolu in the last governorship election in Ondo State.

The judgment was delivered after one hour of anxiety and a split decision of four to three on Wednesday.

In the majority judgment delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, four of the seven-member panel, dismissed the appeal by Eyitayo Jegede and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the grounds of incompetency.

Justice Agim upheld an earlier judgment of the Court of Appeal which stated that the petition filed by Jegede and his party (PDP) at the election tribunal was incompetent because they failed to include the Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the APC, Mai Mala Buni as a party.

This is a developing story.
