The Oyo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ibadan has upheld the election of Governor Seyi Makinde of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The Tribunal dismissed the petition of Bayo Adelabu of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in the March 2, 2019 election.
Adelabu, in his application, prayed the court to pronounce him the winner of the election or order a rerun, citing that the election was fraught with irregularities, over-voting and lack of proper accreditation.
Ruling over one of the claims raised by Adedibu, the tribunal held that he failed to “prove substantial non-compliance with the Electoral Act”.
