Tribunal Ruling: Roads Blocked As Fresh Protests Rock Osun State

The Election Petition Tribunal hearing matters emanating from last July 16 Osun state governorship election on Saturday closed the petition by the immediate past Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, and his party, All Progressives Congress.

The panel admitted original copies of Form CF001 and all its attachments used by Osun State governor, Ademola Adeleke to contest the 2018 governorship elections.

The documents presented to the panel by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were checked and approved by counsel for the petitioners.

Counsel for INEC informed the panel that an original file of Adeleke’s GCE results, testimonial as contained in Form CF001 he used to contest the 2018 election, had been brought by his client in compliance with the order of the Tribunal.

After going through all of the documents presented, Mr Lateef Fagbemi SAN, who represented the petitioners said they were legible enough and applied to tender them before the panel, which was accepted.

The entire document set was then tagged as exhibit ‘FILE D.’

Fagbemi, while further addressing the panel, said the petitioners had closed their case, Justice Tetse Kume thereafter adjourned further hearing till December 20 for the respondents to open their case.
