The Ekiti state governorship petition tribunal sitting in Abuja has declared Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti as the winner of the last governorship election in the state. Fayemi victories were challenged by Kolapo Olusola of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Olusola had filed a petition, alleging that the election was fraught with irregularities and that Fayemi who ran on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) could not be declared a winner. On Monday, the tribunal unanimously struck out Olusola’s case and ruled that Fayemi is the duly elected governor of the state.
Fayose on the Twitter verified handle react on the victory of Fayemi:
I would have been surprised at the judgment of the tribunal if it had been otherwise because the judiciary was already coerced by the APC led federal government. In fact, the judgement was in public domain and celebrated by APC since the last few days.
