Appeal Court Dismisses Adojutelegan’s Suit Against Governor Akeredolu



The appeal filed by Dr Nathaniel Adojutelegan against the victory of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in the primary election of All Progressives Congress(APC) held on July 20, 2020, has been dismissed. 

The appeal was unanimously dismissed by a three-member panel of the appellate court led by Theresa Orj-Abadua for lack of merit.

A member of the panel, who read the lead judgment, said after considering all the issues raised by parties to the case, the appeal was found to be lacking in substance.

The three member panel upheld the decision of the  Federal High Court, Abuja, which earlier dismissed same of being statue barred.

Justice Abang had on December 16 2020 upheld the emergence of Arakunrin Akeredolu as the flag bearer of APC in the governorship election held on the 10th October, 2020.
