Adeyemi Vs Ododo: Supreme Court To Deliver Judgment October 3



The Supreme Court on Thursday in Abuja fixed October 3 for final judgment in a suit filed by Senator Smart Afolabi Adeyemi challenging the conduct of the April 14, 2023, primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Kogi State governorship election.

Adeyemi had approached the court claiming that the result brought out by APC in support of Ahmed Usman Ododo as APC’s flagbearer for the November 11 governorship election was fraudulent and invalid on the ground that the primary election was conducted in only 11 out of 239 wards in the state.

The grouse of the appellant is that the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022 and the guidelines of the APC were compromised during the primary election.

Justice Okoro, after taking arguments from the parties, announced that the final judgment would be delivered on October 3.
