The plaintiffs are praying for an order of the court directing Mr Adeleke to refund all salaries, allowances and other emoluments he has received as
These prayers are brought pursuant to section 65(2)(a) of the 1999 constitution and the judgment of an FCT high court sitting in Bwari, delivered on the 2nd of April.
Justice Othman Musa of the FCT high Court in Bwari had on the 2nd of April held that Mr Adeleke did not possess the minimum qualification of being educated up to secondary level as stipulated under section 177 of the 1999 Constitution.
He added that the results Mr Adeleke attached to his form CF001 which he submitted to INEC and used in contesting the governorship election under
the PDP in Osun was fake.

representing Osun West Senatorial District.
