Osun Governorship Election Tribunal Relocates To Abuja

The Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal constituted to look into the complaints arising from the September 22 poll has been relocated to Abuja, the nation’s capital.

from the High Court of Justice Complex, Osogbo to FCT High Court sitting in Apo, Abuja.

Secretary of the tribunal, Adamu Aliyu, announced this on Saturday in a statement posted on the notice board within the premises of the High Court of Justice Complex, Osogbo, the state capital.

The statement read, “The general public should be informed that the sitting of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has been relocated from High Court Justice Complex Osogbo to FCT High Court Apo, Abuja.”

The relocation followed a statement by the National Headquarters of the Court of Appeal that the tribunal has not been disbanded as claimed by a political party in the state.

Mr Aliyu also confirmed the development to Channels Television in a telephone interview but did not give any reason for the relocation of the tribunal.

Reacting to the news, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun said they were not informed of the logic behind the relocation of the tribunal to Abuja.

Mr Dele Adeleke, who spoke on behalf of the party, insisted that the geographical location of the tribunal would not prevent Senator Ademola Adeleke from reclaiming his mandate as the governor of the state.

He added that the party’s legal team remained undeterred in the quest to expose the purported electoral frauds that took place during the election.
