The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has on Tuesday, responded to the petition filed by the Governor of Osun State and 2022 Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the July 16, election, Gboyega Oyetola, before the Election Petition Tribunal, Page 36 learnt.
Recall, that Governor Oyetola and the APC are challenging the result of the Governorship election before the Tribunal.
They both claim that there was over-voting in some Local Government Areas in the State, in the Governorship poll.
However, the Caretaker Committee Chairman, Osun PDP, Dr. Adekunle Akindele, in his response asked the Election Tribunal to dismiss Governor Oyetola’s petition, describing it as frivolous, baseless and un-meritorious.
He noted that Senator Ademola Adeleke of the PDP and Governor-elect, was duly declared the winner, stating that there was no over-voting in any of the Polling Units being challenged by Governor Oyetola and his APC
Maintaining that the election was free, fair and credible without any iota of non-compliance with the Electoral Act, 2022, the PDP said that the allegations listed in Governor Oyetola’s petition are lame and imaginary.
Akindele concluded that the petition filed by Governor Oyetola and the APC are time-wasting and efforts in futility, adding that Senator Adeleke fulfilled all qualification criteria and conditions to run for the election.
