Appeal Court Confirms Ajimobi’s Defeat



The Federal Appeal Court, Ibadan has on Friday dismissed the appeal of former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi challenging the victory of Senator Kola Balogun  of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Oyo South Senatorial District election.

The Appeal Court panel which lead judgment was read by Justice Haruna Saman unanimously agreed that Ajimobi’s case lacked merit. The appeal panel upheld the judgement of the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal which dismissed Ajimobi’s petition.  Ajimobi was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“This appeal has no merit and so it is hereby dismissed. The judgment of the National Assembly Election Tribunal is hereby affirmed.” Justice Saman declared.
