Supreme Court upholds Governor Fayemi’s election

SUPREME COURT The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.

The court, in a unanimous judgment of a five-man panel, held on Wednesday that the appeal by Segun Oni, was statute barred.

Justice Amiru Sanusi, in the lead judgment, held that the case, being a pre-election one, was not commenced at the trial court, within the required time, as stipulated under the Forth Alteration Act.

Oni, an ex-Governor of Ekiti State had appealed the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which upheld the decision of a Federal High Court, to the effect that his (Oni’s) challenge of Fayemi’s eligibility to contest the last governorship election in the state, was without merit.

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours these days,
    yet I never discovered any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did,
    the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    as well as from our argument made at this time.

    nowadays. I seriously appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!

  6. If the cat is moulting, the importance of such a grooming process
    is even more important. You can use a cat grooming rake
    to get the hair that is loose and dead from the cat,
    helping her with the grooming and trying to prevent the appearance of hairballs in her stomach.
    When it comes safe, natural and easy to use cat litters, there is
    more to choose from than ever before. In any case,
    these ‘Swimming Cats’ just love water, be it in a tub,
    sink or any natural water body. When considering natural solutions, always
    make sure to do your due diligence and research.
    Due to this ridiculous theory, many cats were put
    to death, as well as those humans who appeared to be demons or connected to witchcraft.

    Don’t assume that your cat’s limp is due to old age. Chest and shoulders are quite broad and strong and alongside the wide pelvic girdle, add to the swagger of
    the cat’s gait.
