Just In: Akeredolu Defeats Jegede At Ondo Election Tribunal ~Omonaijablog

Ondo State Governor and the candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC in the last Gubernatorial election, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has defeated his opponent Eyitayo Jegede, (SAN) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at election tribunal sitting in Akure the Ondo State capital.

Ondo State Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Akure and headed by three man-panel has picked Tuesday to deliver judgement in the petition filed by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede, against the victory of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, in last year’s governorship election.

Notice for the shift in date was sent to parties in the suit on Monday night.

The tribunal had fixed judgement for Wednesday but later changed it to Tuesday for reasons yet to be explained.

The judgement would be delivered by 10am via zoom because of the ongoing strike action by members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Jegede is asking the Tribunal to declare him winner of the election on grounds that Governor Akeredolu and his Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, were not validly nominated.

He, however, did not call any witness to testify.

Journalists were bared from covering the election...
