OSUN GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION: Supreme Court dismisses suit challenging the authenticity of Ademola Adeleke’s candidacy

The Supreme Court has dismissed the suit challenging the authenticity of Ademola Adeleke’s candidacy in the just concluded Osun State Governorship Election in South-West Nigeria.

The suit was instituted by Dotun Babayemi, a former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun.

In a judgement delivered by Justice Amina Augie, the five-member panel held that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear the suit after counsel for the appellant, Adebayo Adelodun, withdrew the earlier notice of appeal that was filed within time.
