Rotimi Akeredolu, Eyitayo Jegede
The petition filed by Eyitayo Jegede, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has been struck out by the Ondo State Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Akure.
Jegede had challenged the victory of the ruling APC and its candidate in the October 10, 2020 governorship election which saw the re-election of Governor Akeredolu for a second term in office.
The chairman of the three-member panel Justice Umar Abubakar while delivering judgement in Akure struck out the petition of Eyitayo Jegede of the PDP for want of Jurisdiction.
According to him “Issue raised therein in this petition are settled the issue of internal affairs and management of a political party which this Tribunal has no jurisdiction.”
