Ekiti Guber: Appeal Court Upholds Fayemi’s Victory As Governor 


The Federal Appeal Court, Ado Ekiti Division, has dismissed the appeal filed by former Governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, to challenge the eligibility of Governor Kayode Fayemi to contest the May 12, 2018 governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State. 

In a unanimous decision on Tuesday, the three appellate court justices dismissed Oni’s appeal for lack of merit.

In the judgment delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the Appeal Court held that Fayemi was validly nominated, having complied with the requirement of the constitution of Nigeria.

Justices Adamu Juaro and Abubakar Lamido, who concurred with the judgment, dismissed the appeal accordingly.
