*Apex Court also quashes appeal against Delta, Yobe Governors

By Adeola Oladele

The final victory in respect of last April governorship election has come for Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi as the Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld his election and dismissed the appeal filed by former governor of the state and Accord Party governorship candidate, Senator Rashidi Ladoja.

The apex court in a unanimous verdict dismissed Ladoja’s appeal for lack of merit.

Ladoja had earlier lost at both the election tribunal and the Court of Appeal.

The apex court also dismissed the appeal against the elections of Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and that of Yobe State Governor.

The court said the appeal by Emehor Otega of the All Progressives Congress  and Great Ogboru of Labour Party against Governor Okowa’s election was an abuse of court process.

The Supreme Court stated that it would give the reasons for the three judgements on February 15.
