Fayemi gets Appeal Court’s nod on guber victory
Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has earned an affirmative nod on his gubernatorial election victory by Appeal Court.
Fayemi of the All Progressive Congress (APC) defeated Professor Kolapo Olusola of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to emerge as the Governor of the state.
A three-man panel of the Court sitting in Abuja upheld his victory and dismissed Olusola’s case which challenged Fayemi’s victory at the July 14, 2018 poll.
This Appeal Court ruling corroborates the Ekiti State Election Tribunal of Monday, January 28, 2019 which declared Fayemi as the rightful winner of the poll with 197,459 votes.
