So, there was this senatorial election in Oyo South district. One guy named Senator Sharafadeen Alli from the All Progressives Congress (APC) won the election. He was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
But wait, there’s more! Two other candidates, Joseph Tegbe from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Funmilayo Gbogbolomo from the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), didn’t think Alli’s victory was fair. They went to the National Assembly Petition Tribunal to challenge it.
The tribunal looked into the case and said, “Hey, Alli’s victory is legit!” They dismissed the petitions from Tegbe and Gbogbolomo.
But Tegbe and Gbogbolomo didn’t give up. They took their case to the Court of Appeal, hoping for a different outcome.
Well, guess what? The Court of Appeal said, “Nope, Alli is still the winner!” They dismissed Tegbe’s appeal because they didn’t think it had any good reasons. They also dismissed Gbogbolomo’s appeal.
So, in the end, the judges from the Court of Appeal all agreed that Alli’s victory was fair and square. He gets to keep his seat as the senator from Oyo South district.
