The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna has upheld the  nullification of election of spokesman of the Senate, Dayo Adeyeye and ordered the lndependent National Electoral Commission  (INEC) to issue Certificate of Returns to his challenger, Senator Biodun Olujimi of PDP.
The Eleection Tribunal had nullified Adeyeye’s declaration as the winner of the Ekiti South Senatorial election held on February 23 and declared Senator Biodun Olujimi as the winner.
