Ekiti Guber Poll: Segun Oni Commences Legal Battle Against Victory Of Biodun Oyebanji

Segun Oni, the Social Democratic Party’s (SDP) candidate for governor in the Ekiti State election on June 18, has launched a lawsuit to contest Biodun Oyebanji’s victory.

When comparing Oyebanji’s 187,057 votes to Segun Oni’s 82,209, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) proclaimed Oyebanji the winner of the election.

Speaking to media shortly after submitting the lawsuit on Thursday night at the High Court’s facilities in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State Oni claimed he had come to the court to file his petition legally.

Oni said he’s taking the steps to defend the sanctity of the system and also challenging the outcome of the election because he believes he won it.
