The five-man panel of the court of appeal sitting in Ibadan on Wednesday unanimously struck out the petition filed by Rashidi Ladoja, the Oyo state governorship candidate of the Accord Party.

Ladoja had approached the court to challenge the ruling of the governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Ibadan.

The tribunal had on August 18 struck out an application filed by Ladoja seeking the leave of the court to call in a forensic analyst to tender the report made on the inspection of ballot papers and ballot boxes.

Ladoja had filed a petition challenging the declaration of Ajimobi as winner of the April 11 governorship election.

But in the ruling, the court led by M. Saulawa, a justice, dismissed the entire case and upheld the ruling of the tribunal.

“Handing a different ruling will be an exercise in futility,” he said.

“The appeal is dismissed in its entirety and the ruling of the lower tribunal on August 18 is upheld.”

The court also said that the grounds for appeal were incompetent.

The application to incorporate a fresh issue by the appellant was also dismissed.
