BREAKING: Appeal Court Nullifies Election Of Oyo Governor, Makinde


A Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State on Monday nullified the election of the governor of the state, Seyi Makinde.

Contrary to the judgement of governorship election petition tribunal which declared Mr Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, winner of the election, the appeal court has nullified the election.

In an overwhelming majority judgement, four out of the five-man panel said the tribunal judgement was perverse, while one judge voted in support of the tribunal ruling.

The appeal was filed by the All Progressives Congress, APC governorship candidate, Bayo Adelabu.

However, the appellate court did not give order for a fresh election.
