Aregbesola Floors Omisore At Appeal Court, As Court Upholds Aregbesola’s Election

    Another victory for APC. The Court
    of Appeal, sitting in Akure, has upheld the decision of the election petition
    tribunal which had affirmed the victory of Rauf Aregbesola in the August 9,
    2014 Osun Sate governorship election.
    The Court today, 2nd of
    April, 2015 dismissed the appeal of Iyiola Omisore, the candidate of Peoples
    Democratic Party in the election.
    The court accepted the argument of
    Mr. Aregebsola of the All Progressives Congress that Mr. Omisore’s petition
    ought to have been dismissed as an abandoned petition in the first instance by
    the State Election Petition Tribunal before hearing by the Justice Elizabeth
    Ikpejime led tribunal.

    The Justice Gana Mshelia-led
    Appeal Court in a unanimous decision dismissed Mr. Omisore’s appeal on the
    ground of incompetence.
    It held that the grounds for the
    appeal did not arise from the judgment of the tribunal.
