Browsing: Eyitayo Jegede

The three-man panel of justices led by Theresa Ngolika Orji-Abadua, ruled after counsel to Jegede, Oyeachi Ikpeazu, SAN, argued that the sitting governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, was “not properly nominated” by his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), and so should be sacked.

That political jokester, Agboola Ajayi, and his master, former Governor of the state, Olusegun Mimiko, of the Zenith Labour Party polled a miserable 69,127 votes. What that means is that even if the highly-trumpeted alliance of Jegede and Ajayi had seen the light of the day, it most likely wouldn’t have been able to upstage Akeredolu.
