Adeleke qualified to contest Osun election, says Appeal Court

The Court of Appeal on Thursday has ruled that Senator Ademola Adeleke was qualified to contest the September 2018 governorship election.

Justice Agim held that by virtue of Section 177 of the Constitution, by merely writing the examination and without passing any paper, Adeleke was qualified to contest the governorship election.

A three-man panel of the court made the pronouncement in a unanimous judgment which upheld the appeals by Adeleke and  the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Court of Appeal also held the affidavit evidence of the West African Examination Council and result ledger attached to it showing that Adeleke was not a dropout but actually sat the May 1981 examination of the body at Muslim Grammar School, Ede.
