Posted by: On November 7, 2019 || Categories: News


The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna has nullified the election of spokesman of the Senate, Senator Dayo Adeyeye.

The ruling was delivered by Justice Uzor Anyanwu on Wednesday.

The
court also upheld the tribunal judgment declaring Peoples Democratic
Party’s Senator Abiodun Olujimi winner of the Ekiti South Senatorial
election held on February 23.

The Independent National Electoral
Commission had declared Adeyeye, who ran on the platform of the ruling
All Progressives Congress, winner of the National Assembly election.

Olujimi
approached the elections petitions tribunal, seeking declaration that
she had the highest number of votes in the election.

She urged the tribunal to nullify the APC candidate’s victory, claiming irregularities in the electoral process.

The tribunal subsequently nullified elections in some polling units and declared Olujimi winner.

All Progressives Congress and its candidate in the election, Dayo Adeyeye appealed the tribunal ruling at the appellate court.

Anyanwu upheld the tribunal ruling and also ordered INEC to issue a certificate of return to Olujimi.
