“First of all that the matter in question has been addressed by two high courts ruling ,affirming that in the face of the constitution, Sen. Ademola Adeleke is qualified to run for the governorship.

”The two rulings delivered in September 2018 held that Adeleke satisfied requirement of the law to contest for office.

“It is trite in law that once a court of coordinate jurisdiction has ruled on a matter ,court of similar jurisdiction cannot entertain it,” he said
