Court dismisses suit seeking to sack Gov Akeredolu

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday dismissed a suit challenging the validity of the primary election that produced Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu as the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the 2020 election.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Iyang Ekwo, held that the suit instituted by Olajumoke Anifowose was filed outside the 14 days allowed by law for a pre-election matter.

The plaintiff in the suit filed on her behalf by Adesina Oke, contended that section 87 of the electoral Act and article 20 of the APC Constitution were violated in the primaries by the state executive and local government committee.

Anifiwoshe had approached the court for an order to declare the primaries null and void and to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission from recognising Rotimi Akeredolu as the governorship candidate of the APC in Ondo State.
