Appeal court sacks Senate spokesman

NEWS DIGEST – The Kaduna Division of the Court of Appeal has nullified the election of Dayo Adeyeye, the All Progressives Congress, APC, the Senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial District.

Mr Adeyeye is the spokesman of the 9th National Assembly Senate.

Recall that Mrs Olujimi had challenged the February 23, 2019 National Assembly election result 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 Mr Adeyeye’s victory on the grounds that the election was marred by massive 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.
