The Ondo State election petitions tribunal sitting in Akure has dismissed the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Eyitayo Jegede against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The chairman of the three-member panel Justice Umar Abubakar while delivering judgement in Akure struck out the petition of Eyitayo Jegede of the PDP for want of jurisdiction.

According to him the petition raised was an internal affair and management of a political party which the tribunal has no jurisdiction.
