Supreme Court Strikes Out Segun Oni’s Eligibility Case Against Fayemi

Ayotomiwa Ayodele

A Supreme Court sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, dismissed the case filed by former Deputy National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress and Governorship Aspirant, APC, Chief Segun Oni, over the eligibility of Governor Kayode Fayemi as the candidate of the party in the July 14, 2018 governorship election in the state.

The Supreme Court, in a unanimous judgment, said Fayemi needed not to resign as the then Minister of Steel and Mines Development to contest for the May 12, 2018, Ekiti state APC Governorship primary, where he emerged as the candidate.

Oni’s case before a Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti and the Court of Appeal, Ado-Ekiti was dismissed for lack of merit, before the case was transferred to the Supreme Court.
