Senator Adeyemi’s appeal was centered on his request to nullify the primary election of the APC, which had earlier produced Usman Ododo as the party’s candidate for the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

The legal battle, which began at the lower courts, had garnered considerable attention due to its potential to reshape the political landscape of Kogi State. The APC’s internal dynamics and its choice of candidate had been closely scrutinized by political observers, making this case a critical one for the party.

In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court justices upheld the verdict of the lower courts, stating that there was insufficient evidence to substantiate Senator Adeyemi’s claims of irregularities and violations during the primary election. The judgment effectively endorses Usman Ododo as the APC’s legitimate candidate for the forthcoming governorship election.
