Supreme Court upholds Akeredolu’s election as Ondo governor

Written by on July 29, 2021

The Supreme Court has upheld the re-election of Rotimi Akeredolu as Governor of Ondo State.

Akeredolu’s victory was affirmed after four of the seven justices of the Supreme Court that heard the case upheld his candidacy in the October 10, 2020 election in the state.

Three other justices disagreed with the majority judgment, insisting that Akeredolu’s candidacy in that election is a nullity.

The minority judgment held the view that the appeal has merit and ought not to be struck out by the appeal court.
