Court Dismisses Suit Challenging Governor Oyetola Eligibility

A Federal High court sitting in Abuja has dismissed a suit challenging the qualification of the Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola to contest the party (APC) primaries.

The suit filed by the former governor, Aregbesola ally, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, was dismissed for lack of merit to challenge the eligibility.

Justice Inyang Ekwo dismissed the suit on six grounds that the plaintiff, a Chieftain of APC, Moshood Olalekan Adeoti, failed woefully to disclose any cause of action.

The judge held that the suit instituted by the former governorship aspirant constituted a gross abuse of the court process and that the plaintiff did not exhaust the internal mechanism before rushing to court.

Justice Ekwo upheld the arguments of Olusegun Jolaawo SAN that membership of the APC’s Caretaker Extraordinary and Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) by Governor Oyetola in which the suit is predicted is an ad-hoc body and not the real APC’s office recognised by the party’s Constitution.
