Court throws out suit challenging Akeredolu’s reelection

By News Desk,

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed another suit challenging the validity of the emergence of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the July 20 primary election.

Delivering a ruling, Justice Inyang Ekwo, dismissed the suit filed by an APC aspirant in the poll, Olajumoke Anifowose.

Ekwo held that the application was statute-barred.

Akeredolu was declared the winner of the October 11, 2020 governorship election in the state after polling 292, 830 votes to defeat his closest rival, Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who scored 195, 791 votes.
