The Kaduna Division of the Court of Appeal has nullified the election of spokesman of the Senate, Senator Dayo Adeyeye.

The Appellate Court subsequently upheld the tribunal judgment which declared Senator Biodun Olujimi and the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as winner of the Ekiti South Senatorial election held on February 23.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Dayo Adeyeye of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as winner of the February 23, 2019 National Assembly election.

However, Mrs. Olujimi challenged the result of the election at the tribunal on the grounds that she scored the highest number of votes cast.

In her petition, Senator Olujimi asked the tribunal to nullify Adeyeye’s victory on the grounds that the election was marred by massive riggings and irregularities.

In her written address, the petitioner claimed that the election was not conducted in substantial compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Acts, having been allegedly fraught with all manners of irregularities.
