Ekiti Guber: Supreme Court upholds Fayemi’s election as Governor

The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the election of Kayode Fayemi as Ekiti State governor.

The five-man panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice Tanko Mohammed, the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last governorship election in the state, Kolapo Olusola Eleka.

Delivering his judgement, Justice John Okoro held that the suit challenging the outcome of the poll lacked merit.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Fayemi and the All Progressives Congress polled a total of 197,459 votes to defeated Olusola-Eleka and the PDP who placed second with 178,121 votes in the July 14, 2018 election.
