The appeal filed by former governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni, challenging the eligibility of Governor Kayode Fayemi to contest the May 12, 2018 governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has been dismissed by the Federal Appeal Court, Ado Ekiti Division.
In a unanimous decision on Tuesday, the three appellate court justices dismissed Oni’s appeal for lack of merit.
Justice Emmanuel Agim who delivered the judgment, held that Fayemi was genuinely nominated, having fulfilled the requirement of the Constitution of Nigeria.
Justices Adamu Juaro and Abubakar Lamido concurred with the judgment, and the appeal was dismissed accordingly.
