Adebutu Heads To Supreme Court Over Ogun Guber Election
  • PublishedDecember 25, 2023

The Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in the March 18 election in Ogun State, Oladipupo Adebutu, said he had completed the process of filing his appeal at the Supreme Court.

Adebutu who is challenging the election won by Governor Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress, noted that the poll was marred by alleged over-voting, gross misconduct, disenfranchisement by violence and non-compliance with the electoral act.

But the Ogun State Election Petition Tribunal, in September, dismissed his petition, saying it lacked merit.

Similarly, in a split judgment, the Court of Appealing sitting in Lagos, dismissed Adebutu’s appeal in November.

A statement by his media aide, Afolabi Orekoya, on Monday, disclosed that Adebutu had filed his appeal at the apex court, expressing optimism that justice would be served.

The statement partly read, “In the spirit of the celebration of Christmas, Oladipupo Adebutu, returned home from the United Kingdom to celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth with his people, after ensuring all processes of reclaiming the mandate of the good people of Ogun State had been completed at the Supreme Court without any successful ambush.”
