Supreme Court affirms Owolabi’s nomination as Ekiti Rep, dismisses Daramola’s appeal

The five-man panel led by Justice Inyang Okoro, dismissed an appeal filed by a defeated contestant in the primary, Mr. Bimbo Daramola, who challenged Owolabi’s victory, claiming that no valid primary was held in the federal constituency.

Daramola’s counsel, Mr. A.O. Dada, appreciated the Court even though the decision was against the Appellant. The Supreme Court held that Daramola instituted the suit in a wrong jurisdiction having filed the matter before a Federal Capital Territory High Court.
