Appeal court sitting in Ilorin, the Kwara State, yesterday sacked the All Progressives Congress (APC) speaking to Ilorin South Constituency, Hassan Azeez Oluwanilo, from the House of Assembly.
It pronounced the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) up-and-comer, Jimoh Raheem Agboola, as the champ of the March 9 survey.
Conveying judgment, Justice Hamman Barkar Hkawu put together the court’s choice with respect to the contested APC primaries, which delivered Alhaji Suleiman Abdulsalam, prominently called Sule Cement, yet he was later supplanted with 28-year-old Oluwanilo.
The court held that the APC had no substantial possibility for the 2019 House of Assembly political decision and consequently pronounced the PDP competitor with the second most elevated votes, Agboola, as the victor of the survey.
Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has praised Agboola on the Appeal Court judgment.
The representative, in an announcement by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, stated: “What has happened today is one of the marvels of majority rules system. As respecters of the standard of law and propriety, we submit to the situation of their Lordships and praise our sibling from the resistance.”
