The Supreme Court has affirmed Ayodele Fayose as the rightfully elected governor of Ekiti State in the election that held on the 21st of June 2014. ‎The Judgment which was made this morning in a unanimous decision by the seven-man panel led by Justice John Fabiyi, the apex court maintained the earlier decisions of the Court of Appeal and the Ekiti State Governorship Election Tribunal, which had both earlier ruled that the petition challenging Fayose’s victory lacked merit. ‎The panel stated that the APC failed to prove its allegation that the election was fraught with unparalleled irregularities, adding that the allegation that Fayose tendered forged Higher National Diploma Certificate ‎to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was not proved beyond every reasonable doubt. While upholding the concurrent judgements of both the Ekiti State Governorship Tribunal and the Court of Appeal which had earlier affirmed Fayose’s victory, the apex court, ‎further stressed that the respondent (Fayose) was not validly impeached in 2006.
