The Election Petition Tribunal in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital on Thursday upheld the election of Biodun Oyebanji and his running mate, Mrs. Monisade Afuye as governor and deputy governor.
The duo contested the election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The tribunal in its judgment dismissed the petition of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship candidate, Segun Oni.
In the judgment read by the chairman, Justice Wilfred Kpochi and a member of the panel, Justice Sa’ad Zadawa, resolved all issues in contention against Oni and his party, SDP.
The panel held that the petition filed by Oni against the return of Oyebanji and Afuye respectively “failed woefully head or tail.”
