Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state has finally been declared as lawful winner of Ondo State Governorship Election.
The Supreme Court sitting in Abuja this morning dismissed the petition of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and its candidate, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) who is challenging the victory of Governor Olusegun Mimiko at the last October 20, gubernatorial poll in Ondo State.
The judgement of the Presiding Judge, Justice Murktar, has it that only two out of the five issues for determination in Akeredolu’s appeal are valid.
The judge added that the appellant failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt criminal allegation of connivance in injection of names.
“When a mercenary expert presents evidence, the court has the right to disregard. ACN’s appeal dismissed and parties to bear costs.” The judge said
