Prince Francis Fadahunshi of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is challenging the victory of Senator Babajide Omoworare of the All Progressive Congress, APC, who was returned elected by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC. While the hearing lasted, the petitioner called 30 witnesses and presented documentary evidences before Hon. Justice A. G. Kwajaffa-led panel. The 1st and 2nd respondents, Senator Babajide Omowoware and All Progressive Congress, APC, called 9 witnesses, while the 3rd respondent, INEC, did not call any. Adopting his final address before the panel, counsel to the 1st respondent, Mr. Ipoola Binuyo, urged the panel to dismiss the petition because it was frivolous and unwarranted. Counsel to the All Progressive Congress, APC, Mr. Ibrahim Lawal, also told the panel to dismiss the petition because the petitioners failed to prove their case. INEC counsel, Olorunfemi Olalekan, aligned self with 1st and 2nd respondents’ counsel, saying the petition should be dismissed. Addressing the parties, the tribunal chairman, Justice Kwajaffa, said the panel will communicate them when judgement will be delivered.]]>
