Supreme Court Dismisses Oni’s Suit, Upholds Fayemi’s Victory

Segun Oni

The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismisses suit by Segun Oni against the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi and upheld the latter’s victory.

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

According to Justice Amiru Sanusi, in the lead judgment, 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.
