The sack of Prince Dayo Adeyeye by the National Assembly election petition tribunal has been rejected by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state.
According to the party, the judgement amounted to travesty of justice. They insisted that the APC won the February 23, 2019, senatorial election in the state.
Going further, the party described the judgement as a strange and clear negation of the wishes of the people in the senatorial district, Tribune reports.
“We are surprised by the outcome of the tribunal; we reject it and it will not stand the test of time, because the people voted for APC.
”The outcome was meant to rob us of victory and put our party in disarray as well as raise unnecessary dust in the area, but we are not bothered,” Hon Akin Akinbobola, APC senatorial chairman in the district said.
