JUST IN: The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Bwari, Abuja, on Tuesday, nullified the nomination of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in September 2018 governorship election in Osun State.

Delivering judgment in a suit challenging Adeleke’s qualification to contest for the office of a governor, Justice Othman Musa held that the plaintiffs were able to prove that Adeleke did not possess the minimum qualification of being educated up to secondary level as stipulated under section 177 of the 1999 Constitution.

Justice Musa held that the court’s findings showed that Adeleke was admitted into Ede Muslim High School, Ede, Osun State in 1976, there was no record showing that he graduated as his name was not seen in the school’s register from 1980.

He added that the results Adeleke attached to his form CF001 which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission was fake, as it was found to be different from the one presented to the court by the Principal of Ede Muslim High School, Ede, where he claimed to have graduated.
