Tribunal dismisses APC?s application in Osun

The Osun Governorship Election Tribunal on Friday dismissed an application by the All Progressive Congress to stop the Peoples Democratic Party from inspecting election materials used during the Aug. 9 poll.



APC had filed an application on Aug. 28 asking the Osun State High Court to set aside an order given by Justice I.M Bako chaired panel that granted the request of the PDP to inspect election materials.

The panel now chaired by Justice Sulaiman Ambrusa said the earlier order given by the Bako-led panel was in order.

Ambrusa said the earlier order was granted by the panel on unambiguous ground and in compliance with the Electoral Act.

He said the process of filing was on the point of law by the PDP and that the order given by the panel was in line with the law.

The panel?s chairman, therefore, dismissed the application of the APC.

Mr Abiodun Adeogun, Counsel to the PDP, subsequently filed a fresh application that his client?s petition should be pasted on the tribunal?s notice board.

He said that the order given by the panel on Sept. 11 that the petition should be served on the governor by pasting it on the gate of the Government House was prevented by security men.

Adeogun urged the court to consider it fit to serve the respondent the petition by having it pasted on the tribunal?s notice board in view of the opposition to have it pasted on the Government House gate.

The tribunal granted the application and ordered that the governor should be served the PDP petition by having it pasted on the tribunal?s notice board.
