An Appeal Court has ruled that Osun State PDP Governorship Candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, is academically qualified to contest Governorship Poll.
The Appellate Court revokes the earlier judgment of an Abuja High Court which ruled that Adeleke was not qualified to contest the 2018 Governorship Poll on the ground that he does not possess valid Secondary School Certificate.
Justice Emmanuel Agim, who reads the lead judgment of the Appeal Court, also faulted the High Court for assuming jurisdiction over the case, outside the 14 days allowed for pre-election petitions.
The Appeal Court awarded a n3 million cost against the plaintiff in favour of Senator Adeleke.
