In the unanimous judgement read by Justice H.S. Tsammani,  the court described the case of the sacked Chairmen under the auspices of Associatio of Loçal Government of Nigeria  (ALGON) as speculative.

According to the court in the judgement, the Oyo state’s local government dissolution case is distinguishable from the case of Ekiti State .The Court howver held that with the case of the Oyo ALGON being  speculative and that the Oyo State’s case is distinguishable from the Ekiti State’s case, the Appeal by the Oyo state government succeeded.
