The National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ado Ekiti has nullified the election of the Senator Dayo Adeyeye.
The panel of judges at the Tribunal, in a ruling on Tuesday, nullified the victory of Senator Adeyeye as the winner of the Ekiti South senatorial district election which held on February 23, 2019.
It, however, declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Abiodun Olujimi, as the winner of the poll.
Senator Adeyeye, who is Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, contested the election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
