Supreme Court Affirms Governor Seyi Makinde's victory

The Supreme Court has affirmed the victory of Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state

The Court on Wednesday unanimously agreed that the governor won the 2019 governorship election in line with the announcement of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Earlier, the Appeal Court cancelled the majority judgement of the Election Tribunal which affirmed the victory of Mr Makinde.

However,  the governor did not accept the judgement of the Appeal Court and decided to approach the apex court for redress.

The Supreme court, therefore, affirmed the majority judgment of the trial tribunal which upheld his election as the duly elected governor of Oyo State.
