ACN reclaims victory from Obanikoro

01 February 2013, 14:07

Lagos - The Appeal Tribunal has upturned the judgment of a lower tribunal which declared the PDP candidate, Babajide Obanikoro, as the winner of the 2011 chairmanship election in Obalende/Ikoyi LCDA, Punch reports.

The tribunal unanimously declared that INEC had rightly returned the Action Congress of Nigeria candidate, Mr. Adewale Adeniji, as the winner of the election.

The lower tribunal on October 4, 2012 in its judgment nullified Adeniji’s election and declared Obanikoro as the elected chairman.
