The Ekiti State Governorship Election Tribunal sitting in Abuja has dismissed the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress and its candidate Kayode Fayemi challenging the victory of Governor Ayodele Fayose in the election held in June this year.
The court held that the petition was lacking in merit.
The court dismissed all issues raised in the petition, including the claim that Governor Fayose was ineligible to contest the election based on his purported impeachment and certificate forgery.
Meanwhile, Governor Ayodele Fayose has dedicated his victory at Election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja to God and the entire citizens of the state.
The Governor said the victory has affirmed the supremacy of God and the voice of Ekiti people which they exercised through their votes during the June twenty-first governorship election in the state.
