The Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state, confirmed the ruling of the Ogun State governorship election petitions tribunal.
The Yusuf Halilu-led tribunal had declared Prince Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressive Congress (APC) winner of the governor’s election on March 9th in Ogun State.
The appellate court commission chaired by Judge Abubakar Yahaya rejected the appeal filed by SE. Adekunle Akinlade of the Allied Movement (APM).
The court stated that the appeal lacks merit, claiming that it supports the lower court’s decision.
