Ondo Tribunal: Court rules in favour of Akeredolu

The election tribunal has struck out the petition of the People’s Democratic Party’s candidate against the incumbent governor of Ondo State.

The PDP and its candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, challenged the October 2020 guber election that returned Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.

The tribunal judgement, which was earlier scheduled for Wednesday April 20th, was rescheduled last night to today and was held via Zoom.

The two hours judgement, however struck out Jegede’s petition for lack of Jurisdiction.

According to the tribunal, “Issue raised therein in this petition are settled issue of internal affairs and Management of a political party which this Tribunal has no Jurisdiction”.
