Election Tribunal unanimously upholds Kayode Fayemi’s victory as the duly elected governor of Ekiti State

Moments ago, an election tribunal sitting in Abuja unanimously struck out the case of the Peoples Democratic Party Governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Olusola Eleka and upheld Dr Kayode Fayemi of the APC as a duly elected governor of the state.

A petition had been filed by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the July 14 governorship election, Prof. Kolapo Olusola challenging the electoral victory of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi.


In an over 700-page petition, Olusola had asked the Ekiti Governorship Election Petition Tribunal to declare him as the winner of the election “having scored the majority of lawful votes.”
