However, INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu played down the issue and the DSS invitation withdrawn, there are still developing tensions in the commission.

“The officers were only invited to shed light on the operational modalities of INEC and why the sabotage occurred. We called on them as part of the comprehensive investigation into some allegations raised by the INEC chairman last Saturday.

“Following a twist in the DSS investigation, the invitation was stepped down. I won’t tell you it was dropped because some INEC officers have been implicated in some deals.”ELECTION FRAUD!!

But a source within INEC said: “The five officers were officially communicated through the DSS at the close of on Monday. Early on Tuesday morning, a reminder was sent to all the invitees.

“The invitation generated tension in INEC because those summoned hail mostly from the Southeast, Southsouth and Southwest. Some of them have nothing to do with logistics. We did not know why the DSS left out the director of Logistics and the deputy from the North.ELECTION FRAUD!!

“Some staff also saw it as an attempt to intimidate INEC and its officers. The ethnic tension made the INEC management to wield influence to prevail on the DSS to have a rethink on the invitation because it can disrupt plans for Saturday elections.

“It was based on the grave security implications that the invitation of the five top officers was stepped down.”ELECTION FRAUD!! DSS frees INEC officials as EFCC detains Atiku’s associate over N1.5billion ($4m) alleged money laundering Atiku Uyi Giwa Osagie

Meanwhile, Uyi Giwa-Osagie a businessman who is said to be an associate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has been detained following allegation of money laundering of about N1.5billion ($4million).

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) believes the money was laundered for the purpose of the presidential elections and the arrest was made possible following an intelligence on a suspicious transaction by a Bureau De Change operator.Image result for Uyi Giwa-Osagie and Atiku  ELECTION FRAUD!!

The Nation had exclusively reported on Monday how the PDP reportedly allocated $3million each for “logistics” to its 36 state branches and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Most Bureau De Change operators and banks have, however, refused the “pressure” to convert the hard currency to Naira.

An EFCC source said: “A BDC operator was intercepted for shipping $2million from Abuja to Lagos for suspected money laundering.

“We invited Uyi for interrogation on Monday and Tuesday. Our detectives have also conducted a search of his home. Some useful documents were retrieved.

“Apart from documents relating to posh properties at home and abroad, a copy of the EFCC Investigation Report on Atiku’s relationship with a jailed U.S. , Williams Jefferson, was retrieved from Uyi.

“ An analysis of the account indicated that it yielded over $30million deposits mostly from a firm with a link with the PDP candidate,” the source said, pleading not to be named because of the “sensitivity” of the matter.ELECTION FRAUD!!

He added: “Obviously, there were remittances from the account of a multi-national company linked with the PDP candidate.”

Responding to a question, the source said: “We closed in on Uyi on Monday. We have decided to detain him pending the conclusion of investigation.”ELECTION FRAUD!!

Another source described Uyi as “a reputable lawyer to Atiku”. “It is not out of place if Atiku’s dossiers are found with him.

“ You also need to appreciate his background and antecedents, he is from a very wealthy heritage. By the time he opens up, the EFCC will know that he is not an overnight associate of Atiku.”ELECTION FRAUD!!

Is president Muhammadu Buhari using the DSS and EFCC against Atiku or is the timing of the cases a coincident?

OSUN POWER TUSSLE: OYETOLA MAKES REQUEST TO SUPREME COURT

osun power tussle: oyetola makes request to supreme court OSUN POWER TUSSLE: OYETOLA MAKES REQUEST TO SUPREME COURT Adeleke and Oyetola

Gov. Adegboyega Oyetola has on Monday asked the Supreme Court to dismiss all four appeals which had been filed by Sen. Ademola Adeleke the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging his victory in the 2018 Osun Governorship .

Adeleke had made a move of upturning Oyetola’s victory by approaching the apex court with appeals marked:SC/553/; SC/554/; SC/555/ and SC/556/

Justice Mohammed  Tanko choose July 5 as the date to deliver judgment on the appeal, Tanko  made this declaration after all parties adopted their written addresses. The Counsel for Adeleke and the PDP Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN) asked the court to grant the prayers contained in his client appeal, by upturning the judgment of the Court of Appeal that affirmed Oyetola as the validly elected governor of the state.

His statement had read:

“My Lords we pray the court to set aside the judgments of the Court of Appeal and restore the majority judgment given in his client’s favor by the election tribunal,’’

However, Chief Wole Olanipekun urged the court to ignore Adeleke’s request by affirming the judgment of the Court of Appeal. The Counsel for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the APC, consequently supported Olanipekun’s submission, and prayed the court to dismiss the appeal.

The  request made by Adeleke to declare the supplementary election void had been rejected by both courts, Ikpeazu had said INEC lacked the powers to have canceled elections in some pooling units and order a rerun.

He subsequently argued that supplementary election was not not needed because his client had fulfilled all constitutional requirement to be declared the winner of the election. He sited paragraph 44 of the INEC’s Guideline, on which basis the supplementary election was held, as according to him is in conflict with the Constitution. osun power tussle: oyetola makes request to supreme court OSUN POWER TUSSLE: OYETOLA MAKES REQUEST TO SUPREME COURT Gboyega Oyetola e1538219216656 504x284 300x169

NAN had reported that

The Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal had on March 22 declared the PDP candidate as the duly-elected governor of the state, thereby setting aside Oyetola’s victory at the poll. The tribunal held that the cancellation of results from seven polling stations across the state resulting in the conduct of the supplementary election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC violated the Constitution.

The state election tribunal therefore directed the electoral body to withdraw the Certificate of Return earlier issued to Oyetola and issue same to Adeleke. Dissatisfied with the decision, Oyetola, APC and INEC approached the Court of Appeal in Abuja with separate appeals challenging Adeleke’s declaration as governor by the tribunal. The appellate went ahead to upturn the decision of the tribunal in a judgment on May 9 which re-affirmed Oyetola’s victory as governor of the state. Also aggrieved with the decision, Adeleke approached the apex court urging it to set aside the judgment of the court of appeal and to restore the judgment of the tribunal.

On Thursday February 23rd, , the Independent National Electoral Commission had revealed that it does not have in it’s possession the electronic server which Alhaji Atiku Abubakar had demanded for, and had also revealed why the tribunal should dismiss the case. The Petition had been filed to challenge the victory of Buhari in the last presidential on February 23rd.

The respondents to the petition which include President Mohammadu Buhari, INEC and the All Progressive Congress  have asked the panel led by Justice Mohammed Garba to dismiss the petitioners demand.

The counsels of the respective respondents have reiterated to the tribunal that the court of appeal had earlier dismissed such an application which the petitioners had also filed and therefore it should not hold water.

Mr Yunus Usman(SAN) the lead counsel of INEC had said the application meant asking the electoral body to produce what it did not have in it’s possession.

Usman’s statement had read in part:

“We attached as Exhibit 1, the enrolled order of this honorable court made on May 6, 2019 refusing all the prayers of the petitioners in this application.

“They said we should bring what we don’t have.”

On February 23rd Muhammadu Buhari under the umbrella of APC had been declared the winner of the 2019 Presidential Election.

The result had declared that Buhari had defeated his rival with 15,191,847 votes, while Atiku had only gotten 11,262,978 votes. Atiku had however contended that in a petition filed on March 18 that the real data gotten from INEC,  had showed a total of 18,356,732 votes to defeat Buhari whom he said scored 16,741,430 votes.

Dr. Livy Ozoukwu, the lead counsel of the petitioners had subsequently filed an application on May 8, 2019 which had sought an order from the tribunal permitting them to access INEC’s server where the results and other data had been allegedly transmitted, during the election.

Chief Chris Uche (SAN) a senior member of the petitioners legal team  had moved the application on Thursday.

Uche had pleaded with the tribunal to do the needful by granting the application to show that they are transparent and neutral in maintaining justice

His statement had read in part:

“The application in summary asks for access to and inspection of the server of the INEC and the smart card readers used in the conduct of the presidential election.

“We have addressed the issues in our counter-affidavit, written address and reply on points of law and we urge your lordships that the application be granted as prayed in the interest of justice, transparency and neutrality.

He had added that the application  was necessary for the maintenance of the petition.

Usman the lead counsel of INEC had reminded the tribunal of the counter affidavit of his client which had been filed on May 23rd in opposition to the application, saying that since the Court of Appeal had refused similar application, then it definitely should not be granted again.

Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), leader of Buhari legal team had then asked the tribunal to immediately dismiss the application.
