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

NAIJARAY understands that 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.

Meanwhile, the tribunal in its judgment nullified elections in some polling units and declared Mrs. Olujimi the authentic winner of the polls.

Dissatisfied with the tribunal judgment, both Adeyeye and His party, APC filed a petition at the court of appeal asking it to set aside the ruling of the tribunal.

However, while delivering a unanimous judgement on Wednesday at the appellate in Kaduna state, Justice Uzor Anyanwu upheld the judgment of the tribunal and ordered INEC to issue fresh certificate of return to Senator Biodun Olujimi.
