The Appeal court in Abuja has reserved judgment in a three-legged appeal filed by Governor Gboyega Oyetola, his party and the Independent National Electoral Commission over the nullification of his election by the election tribunal.
After listening for eight hours to the submissions of three senior lawyers for Oyetola and the lawyers for Senator Ademola Adeleke, Justice Jummai Sankey, said judgment would be reserved till a later date.
She told the parties that the date of the judgment would be communicated to them by the court’s Registry.
Other members of the court’s five-man panel are: Justices Abubakar Datti Yahaya, Ita George Mbaba, Isaiah Olufemi Akeju and Bitrus Sanga.
Oyetola, his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had asked the court to uphold the governor’s victory in the governorship election held on September 22 and 27, 2018.
