Supreme Court dismisses PDP’s appeal, upholds Fayemi’s victory as Ekiti Governor

The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last governorship election in Ekiti, Kolapo Olusola Eleka, challenging the victory of the election of Governor Kayode Fayemi.

Justice John Okoro leading the five-man panel of the court ruled that the appeal was unmeritorious and proceeded to uphold an earlier judgment by the Court of Appeal, Abuja, which affirmed the decision of the election tribunal, to the effect that Fayemi was validly elected.
