The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Governor Gboyega Oyetola has been granted the permission by the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo to inspect materials used for the July 16, Osun governorship poll.
Naija News reports that Oyetola in a suit had challenged Osun governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke’s victory at the poll before the tribunal and also joined the Independent National Electoral Commission and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The tribunal, on Monday also granted the plaintiffs’ request to electronically scan the voters’ register used in the election, as well as the election ballot papers.
The chairman of the tribunal, Justice Tertsea Kume, ordered Adeleke, to be summoned through ‘substitution of service of notice’ while granting the two applications (motion exparte) by the plaintiffs.
Kume said that the notice of summon should be pasted on the notice board of the tribunal.
Earlier, Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Chief Yomi Aliyu (SAN), told the tribunal while speaking on the two applications, that every effort made by the court bailiff to serve Adeleke the notice of summon, failed.
He further revealed how the security guards turned the bailiff away when he went to his house at Aisu, Ede, after a call was made to someone in the house that directed them not to collect the summon notice.
