Supreme Court affirms Adeleke, Osun gov-elect as PDP candidate

The Supreme Court has affirmed Senator Ademola Adeleke, Osun State governor-elect as the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the state governorship election held on July 16.

The apex court, in a unanimous judgement by a five-man panel of justices, dismissed an appeal lodged against Adeleke by Prince Dotun Babayemi who laid claim to governorship ticket of the PDP, having emerged from a parallel primary election that was held by a faction of the party in the state.

Counsel to the Appellant, Mr. Adebayo Adelodun, SAN, withdrew the appeal after the panel led by Justice Amina Augie, drew his attention to the fact that the case was statute barred.

The panel had maintained that the appeal was incompetent, stressing that it was filed outside the 14 days period provided by the law.
