The Federal High Court has dismissed a case brought by a governorship aspirant of the APC, Chief Segun Oni, challenging the eligibility of Dr Kayode Fayemi as the candidate of the party in the last governorship election in Ekiti State.

Justice Uche Agomoh said in her judgement that Oni’s case “lacked merit” and dismissed it.

She disagreed with the claimants that Fayemi was ineligible to stand the election on the basis of his involvement by a judicial commission of inquiry and that as “a public servant,” he did not resign 30 days to election.
