Senator Rashidi Ladoja

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ibadan will on Tuesday deliver judgment in Sen. Rasidi Ladoja’s petition.

Ladoja, the governorship candidate of Accord Party, is challenging the victory of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in April 11 polls.

He joined APC, INEC and the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Rufus Akeju, as co-respondents.

The Counsel to the petitioner, Mr Richard Ogunwole (SAN), had urged the tribunal to nullify Ajimobi’s election and declared his client as the winner of the election or order a rerun.

Ogunwole contended that the election was marred by irregularities and malpractices.

But, Mr Wole Olanipekun (SAN), Counsel to Ajimobi, urged the tribunal to dismiss the petition, saying that it lacked merit and facts.

The tribunal Chairman, Justice Mohammed Mayaki, had on Sept. 30 after the adoption of the written addresses promised that the date for the judgment would be communicated to the parties.
