Again, Appeal Court Dismisses Suit Challenging Akeredolu’s Candidacy In 2020 Gov. Election



The appeal filed by Dr Nathaniel Adojutelegan against the victory of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in the primary election of All Progressives Congress(APC) held on July 20, 2020, has been dismissed.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja in a unanimous decision, held that the appeal lacks merit.

The appeal was unanimously dismissed by a three-member panel of the appellate court led by Theresa Orj-Abadua.

Ibrahim Adeyangi, a member of the panel, who read the lead judgment, said after considering all the issues raised by parties to the case, the appeal was found to be lacking in substance.

The three member panel upheld the decision of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which earlier dismissed same of being status barred.

Justice Abang had on December 16, 2020 upheld the emergence of Akeredolu as the flag bearer of APC in the governorship election held on the 10th October, 2020.
