Supreme Court Affirms Dapo Abiodun as Ogun State Governor



The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Dapo Abiodun as the governor of Ogun State, dismissing the appeal filed by Ladi Adebutu, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Justice Tijjani Abubakar, leading the five-member panel dismissed the application filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate, Hon. Ladi Adebutu. The application sought to strike out Governor Dapo Abiodun’s prayers, establishing allegations of vote buying against the opposition party and its candidate.

Governor Abiodun, in response to the PDP and Adebutu’s petition, accused them of engaging in electoral fraud during the March 18 election. The governor supported his defense with evidence obtained through discreet investigation and confessions of some PDP members allegedly involved in electoral malfeasance.

This verdict follows the earlier affirmations of Governor Abiodun’s election by the state election petition tribunal and the Court of Appeal. The Supreme Court’s decision marks the final resolution of the governorship election dispute in Ogun State, bringing closure to the legal proceedings surrounding the electoral contest.
