The Osun Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo, on Monday, granted the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun, access to inspect election materials used for the Osun July 16, governorship election.
The Tribunal also granted the party’s request to scan the voters register used for the election, as well as, the ballot papers.
Justice Tertsea Kume, the Chairman of the Tribunal, while giving orders on the two applications (motion experte) of the APC and Gov. Oyetola, ordered that Osun Governor-Elect, Sen. Ademola Adeleke, should also be summoned through ‘substitution of service of notice’.
Kume directed that the notice of summon should be pasted on the notice board of the Tribunal.
Earlier, Chief Yomi Aliyu (SAN), the Counsel to APC/Gov. Oyetola, while speaking on the two applications before the Tribunal said every effort made by the court bailiff to serve Ademola Adeleke, the second respondent in their application failed.
He said the bailiff went to the second respondent’s home at Aisu , Ede, but the security guard turned the bailiff away after a call was made to someone in the house that directed them not collect the summon notice.
He said the bailiff explained (in an affidavit presented) that his security was threatened when he went to serve Adeleke the summon notice at his home, so Aliyu prayed the Tribunal to substitute the notice service.
CityMirrorNews reports that Gov. Gboyega Oyetola and APC are plaintiffs in the suit challenging the victory of Sen. Ademola Adeleke at the Osun July 16 governorship election.
Oyetola and APC are, however, joining the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as respondents in their suit
