Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state will today know his fate as the Supreme court will be delivering judgment on the petition filed by the APC challenging his victory at the June 21 2014 governorship election. APC in its petition, had alleged that unlawful use of soldiers, intimidation of its supporters and compromised ballot papers were used to achieve his victory at last year’s elections.
The APC had lost in an earlier petition at the Ekiti state Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal on December 19, 2014 which upheld Governor Fayose’s victory. A dissatisfied APC approached the Supreme court for further hearing on the matter.
Meanwhile tension has reportedly gripped the state as both party supporters are awaiting the outcome of the supreme court judgement today.
