Supreme Court dismisses Adebutu’s appeal, affirms Abiodun as Ogun governor
The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the election of Dapo Abiodun as governor of Ogun State.
A five-member panel of the Supreme Court, headed by John Okoro, held that the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu, failed to prove allegations of non-compliance with the Electoral Act during the conduct of the 18 March poll.
“This appeal is unmeritorious and ought to be dismissed and it is hereby dismissed. The judgement of the Court is hereby affirmed,” Tijjani Abubakar, who read the lead judgement, said.
Mr Abiodun was re-elected as the Governor of Ogun State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in March 2023.
