APC Supporters in Wild Jubilation as Governor Ajimobi Scores a Twofer in Oyo Tribunal

Happenings

Supporters of All Progressives Congress and its governor in Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, have reportedly taken over the streets of Ibadan after the state’s Election Petitions Tribunal dismissed the charges filed by the candidate of Accord Party and a former governor, Alhaji Rasheed Ladoja, challenging the victory of Ajimobi after INEC declared him winner in the April 11 gubernatorial election.

Mr. Ladoja had approached the court, alleging that the election was marred by widespread irregularities, violence and non-compliance with the Electoral Act.

But Justice Mohammed Mayaki, who led the three-man tribunal, said Ladoja “failed woefully” to substantiate his case beyond reasonable doubt.

Meanwhile, Ladoja has reportedly told his lawyer not to file an appeal against the case.
