It would be recalled that Oni had gone to court after the May 26, 2018 APC governorship primary to challenge Governor Kayode Fayemi’s eligibility to participate in the election.

Oni had said that going by the constitution of the party, Fayemi , being a Minister in the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari ought to resign 30 days to the primary.

Fayemi resigned in June, 2018.

He later won the July 14 governorship election, by defeating the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Prof Kolapo Olusola.

But the Supreme Court in its judgement dismissed Oni’s suit for lack of merit, saying Fayemi didn’t breach the law by resigning after the primary.
