The Supreme Court has unanimously dismissed the suit filed by Dotun Babayemi challenging the emergence of Osun State Governor-Elect, Ademola Adeleke, as the authentic candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP for the gubernatorial election that held in the state on 16th July.

A five-man panel of justices, declared the appeal as incompetent, having being filed outside the 14 days period provided by the law.

Counsel to the Appellant, Adebayo Adelodun SAN, withdrew the appeal after the panel led by Justice Amina Augie, drew his attention to the fact that the case was statute barred.

Babayemi had challenged Adeleke’s candidacy after he won in a parallel primary election held by a faction of the party in the state.
