Ekiti Gov's Polls: Tribunal Affirms Fayemi As Winner

Jane Okafor, Abuja

A Governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja has affirmed Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, as the winner of the governorship election conducted in the state last year.

Fayemi contested the election on the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and his declaration as winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) was challenged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Olusola Eleka.

Eleka had approached the tribunal for intervention alleging series of election irregularities and malpractices as reasons the court should adjudicate on it.

But on Monday, the Ekiti State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja struck out Eleka's case and holds that Fayemi is the validly elected Governor of the state.
