The Ondo State Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Akure has rejected the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Eyitayo Jegede against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) (APC).

Jegede had questioned the ruling APC’s and its candidate’s victory in the governorship election on October 10, 2020, which saw Governor Akeredolu re-elected for a second term.
