The court held that Akeredolu’s victory in the October 10th, 2020 Gubernatorial elections stands. In the majority judgment delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, four of the seven-member panel, dismissed the appeal by Eyitayo Jegede and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the grounds that it was incompetent.
