The last petition by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) against the election of Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde has been dismissed by the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ibadan.

The Tribunal also awarded N1 million cost to the 2nd and 3rd Respondent.

All three members of the Tribunal aligned with the decision and cost, saying it will serve as a deterrence against politicians who always file what they described as frivolous petitions.

The Petitioner, APM, on Tuesday, filed to withdraw its petition as the Tribunal fixes Thursday for the hearing of the matter.
