The Federal High Court sitting  in Abuja on Thursday dismissed a suit asking for the disqualification of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State as candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the July 16 governorship election in the state.

Delivering Judgement, Justice Inyang Ekwo, held that the plaintiff, Moshood Adeoti, failed to support the process with relevant laws, and as such, showed no cause of action in the suit which makes it a gross abuse of court process.

Justice Inyang added that the suit instituted falls outside the scope of section 87(9) of the Electoral Act and Section 22 of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

Adeoti a chieftain of the APC was one of the aspirants in the February 19 APC governorship primary for the state but he lost the ticket to Governor Oyetola.
