The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital has upheld the election victory of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in the last governorship polls in the state.
The appellate court in its ruling on Wednesday dismissed the appeal filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede for lack of merit.
It will be recalled that Governor Akeredolu contested and won on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Not satisfied with the result, Jegede had approached the election tribunal which earlier struck out his case, making him approach the appellate court.
But the appeal court, having examined the seven grounds of appeal tabled by the appellant, dismissed the appeal in its final ruling on Wednesday, saying it lacked merit.
