The Supreme Court has upheld the re-election of Rotimi Akeredolu as Governor of Ondo State on October 10, 2020. The apex court affirmed Akeredolu’s re-election in a judgement delivered today July 28.  In the majority judgment delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, four of the seven-member panel dismissed the appeal by Eyitayo Jegede and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the grounds that it was incompetent. Justice Agim upheld an earlier judgment of the Court of Appeal, that the petition filed by Jegede and his party at the election tribunal was incompetent because they failed to include Yobe Governor and Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the APC, Mai Mala Buni as a party. In the minority judgment read by Justice Mary Peter-Odili, the court upheld the appeal and dismissed the cross-appeal by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Akeredolu, and the APC.The post Supreme court upholds Governor Akeredolu’s election appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
