10 November 2015, 15:20

Akure - The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure on Monday affirmed the decision of the Ondo State Election Petitions Tribunal which upheld the election of Mike Omogbehin of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a member representing Okitipupa/Irele constituency in the House of Representatives, reports The Nation.

The court dismissed an appeal by Victor Akinmoyero of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for failure to tender credible documentary evidence.

The court in its ruling, which was read by Justice Muheed Owoade, held that Akinmoyero only tendered hearsay evidence and also failed to call enough witnesses to prove his allegations of over-voting and other electoral irregularities in the March 28 National Assembly election.

The court ruled that Omogbehin was duly elected  in the election and fined Akinmoyero N30 000.
