Appeal Court Affirms Governor Abiodun’s Victory     

Funsho Akinwale

The Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan on Monday upheld the victory of the tribunal’s judgement in favour of Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, against the appeal filed by Hon Adekunle Akinlade of the Allied Peoples Movement.

Before heading to the appellate court, the state tribunal had earlier dismissed Akinlade’s petition, noting that the suit lacked merit to challenge the governor’s victory.

Justice Abubakar Yahya led a five-man panel of the Appeal Court, dismissed the petition filed by Akinlade and his party for not having concrete evidence to cancel the last governorship poll in the state.
