Production Of Certificate May Subject The Court To Mockery
The plaintiffs that are challenging the Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the Osun State Governorship, Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke, have approached the Osun State High Court for a possible withdrawal of the suit.
The plaintiffs, Rasheed Olabayo and Oluwaseun Idowu, when the case came up for hearing, hinted the court of their decision to withdraw the case from court and settle it out of court.
They had approached the court claiming that Senator Adeleke did not possess a certificate as required by section 177 (d) of the 1999 constitution.
They had also told the court to set aside the July 21, 2018, primary election which produced Adeleke as the governorship candidate of the PDP in Osun State.
Justice David Oladimeji had explained that granting the leave to restrain the PDP from presenting Adeleke as its governorship candidate over his inability to present his certificate may subject the court to mockery if the senator thereafter presents the certificate.
