Former Oyo State Governor Rashidi Ladoja yesterday lost his petition against the election of Governor Abiola Ajimobi, ending six months of legal tussle.

The governorship election petitions tribunal, sitting in Ibadan, the state capital, held that Ladoja and his party, Accord, “failed woefully” to prove their case.

The tribunal resolved all the issues for determination in Ajimobi’s favour during the delivery of the four-and a half-hour judgment.

Ladoja had urged the tribunal before now to, among others, declare him winner of the election because he polled the highest number of votes.
