Appeal Court sacks Senate spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye

The Court of Appeal, sitting in Kaduna, has sacked the spokesman of the Senate, Dayo Adeyeye of the All Progressives Congress (APC), from the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

In a ruling delivered, on Wednesday, the appellate court declared Sen. Biodun Olujimi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), winner of Ekiti South senatorial election.

The National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal, sitting in Ado-Ekiti, on September 9, nullified declaration of Sen. Adeyeye as winner of the February 23 senatorial election.

The three-member Tribunal, chaired by Justice Danladi Adeck, in a unanimous decision, had declare Olujimi, a former Senate Minority leader, as the winner of the election.

In the judgment, the Tribunal nullified elections in some polling units which left Olujimi polling 54,894 votes to defeat Adeyeye, who scored 52,243 votes.

The Appeal Court judgment, which was initially scheduled to be delivered, in Ado-Ekiti, was moved to Kaduna for security reasons.

Security men, journalists and interested party loyalists from the PDP and APC were already seated in the courtroom for the judgment when one of the officials conveyed the message that the case had been moved to Kaduna.

The movement, it was learnt, was not unconnected with mounting tension and violence that could trail the judgment.
