0 152

The Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a swipe at the Allied  Peoples Movement (APM), and its candidate at the March 9, governorship election, on their plan to appeal the judgment of tribunal at the Supreme Court.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State, has dismissed the petition filed by the APM candidate, Adekunle  Akinlade, against the victory of Governor Dapo Abiodun.

In a unanimous decision, the Appeal court justices said the appeal “lacks merit and it is therefore struck out.”

In the lead judgment, Justice Muhammed Ambi-Usi Danjuma declared that the 10 grounds filed by the Akinlade and his party challenging the victory of Abiodun have no merits and that the two appellants were overruled because of lack of merit.

The judgement reads: “The respective objections raised by the two respondents are overruled and the emotions have no remit, answers to them are sustained and the two motions are dismissed.”

However, the APM and it’s candidate told the media last weekend that they will be approaching the Supreme Court as the last port of call in gubernatorial election petition.
