Herewith attach for your photographic and documentary evidence for your carefully perusal that shows the act of oppression, intimidation, molestation and harassment during and after election before computing the result in the result sheets. More so, cases of over voting in the following polling units in Oshodi/Isolo Federal Constituency 1, Alasia Compound 001, Brown Street 012, Afolabi primary school 013, Banjoko/ Marcarty 015, Ogunlana/Health Centre 016, Oredeyin/Araromi 018, Inasa/Micheal 019, Dipeolu/Alade 020, Brown/Church 021, Alade/Church 022, Church Street 023, Owoseni/Kale Street 026, 5, Shoneye Street 032, Methodist Primary School 039, Sadiku Street 053, Salami Street 055, Seinde Calisto 066, Adewale Crescent 067 and Unity Primary School 068.

They rather support the sinister motive and aid them to perpetrate their unlawful acts.

To our surprise, the Security Agents submit themselves to the miscreants and hoodlums to serve as medium tools to bargain with INEC ADHOC STAFF to rig the election of 23rd of February 2019 in favour of the All Progressive (APC) candidates. However, they succeeded in perpetrating their unlawful acts.

We call on the authority concerned to use their good and cancel the above mentioned polling unit’s results and ensure that free and fair election within those affected units in Oshodi / Isolo Constituency 1.s

TAKE NOTICE that our Party stands by the rule of law and upon fragrant, neglect and refusal to act within an hour upon receipt of this petition will lead us with no option than to seek the redress in appropriate quarters.

We submit that the election of 23rd of February 2019 at Oshodi /Isolo constituency 1 within the wards and polling units of aforementioned is not in line with the provision of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, electoral Act and other miscellaneous provisions guiding election; we hereby call for nullification of the same.

We do hope that our demand will meet your satisfaction.

Thank you for your usual cooperation and understanding.

Yours faithfully,

Signed

PDP vs APC: Atiku heads to Supreme Court over INEC server

pdp vs apc: atiku heads to supreme court over inec server PDP vs APC: Atiku heads to Supreme Court over INEC server c5ff686f atiku

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has vowed to challenge, at the Supreme Court, the dismissal of their application to be granted access to inspect the central server allegedly used by the Independent National Electoral Commission, , to transmit results of the last general .

Recall that the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal had earlier ruled in a unanimous decision that the request could not be granted since the issue of whether such central server existed or not, is already a subject of controversy in the substantive petition that is challenging Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.

Reacting to the Tribunal’s ruling, a senior member of the Atiku and PDP’s legal team, Chief Chris Uche, SAN, told Journalists: “The nation was looking forward to this ruling and it is one that is very pivotal to this matter.

“The Electoral Act itself empowers the tribunal to grant access such as this to the petitioners in order to institute and maintain a petition, and that is what we are asking for.

“Somehow, at this stage, the court has ruled. But definitely this is a matter we want to take higher to the Supreme Court to challenge this ruling because we strongly feel that section 151 of the Electoral Act entitles us to have access to these materials.”

On its part, INEC, through its lawyer, Mr. Usman Uztaz, SAN, said it was satisfied with the ruling.

“These are issues to be tried during the hearing, you cannot try them in piecemeal”, INEC’s lawyer told newsmen.

Oshiomhole speaks on ‘becoming new godfather’ of Edo politics

oshiomhole speaks on ‘becoming new godfather’ of edo politics Oshiomhole speaks on ‘becoming new godfather’ of Edo politics Oshiomhole2 1024x576 3

National Chairman of the All Progressives , APC, Adams Oshiomhole has denied accusations of perpetuating himself as the new godfather of Edo politics.

Oshiomhole made the denial on Sunday while fielding questions from State House correspondents after leading some APC members to meet with Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa, Abuja.

Speaking on the latest crisis rocking the party in Edo state, the APC National Chairman challenged his accusers to come up with proofs.

He said, “What is the evidence? It’s all about accusation. They have to give you the particulars of that godfatherism. What’s the evidence? I am a democrat. That I accept the credit, not only that, I fought godfatherism”

Oshiomhole boasted that he did not only destroy the concept of godfathers in Edo politics but also launched the one man one campaign to fight against rigging anywhere in .

He said, “By the special grace of God under PDP with Anenih alive, and at his best, I won all the 18 local government areas and I won 95 percent of the total votes cast in my second term election.

“So, Edo people know me and I know them. I don’t need short-cut to sustain my position in the system. But you know that there is nobody in Nigeria who is not open to accusations. The important thing is that he who accuses should give you proofs.“

The former Edo State governor also condemned the use of few members of the State House of Assembly to elect leadership of the House, without the consent of majority of the members.

“You know that what happened in Edo was that they did not publicize a proclamation letter, the members were not informed, they did the inauguration at 9:30 pm in what in a Supreme Court judgement they call nocturnal hours. Business of parliament are done transparently; they are not secret cult. Now you have 24 member House, 19 members protested.

“You have six and you carry people in their short knickers, even in the House they have rules, the code.

“So, it happened in Edo, it has happened in Bauchi. Like Edo, Bauchi used the minority of 10 to go and proclaim the House and lockout 20 APC members and got those 10 people to elect, exactly the way Edo did with 6 and then co opted other 3 people to become 9 and even at that, it is nonsense.

“For us these are completely illegal. And that is why we said so. If it is wrong, it is wrong whether it is done by APC or by PDP.

“I believe by the end of the day, the solution is return to the rule of law. Let’s properly follow the law; let the parliament do what they have to do but people have the right to lobby for people they want and whom they prefer. This is also legitimate.”

He called on the states to emulate the example of the National Assembly where the contestants and party officials lobbied to be elected as leaders of the Legislature, culminating in the election of leaders through the secret ballot.

According to him, “We have an APC Senator, who in spite of all the efforts invested by all our leaders including Mr. President, insisted that he will contest.

“The law allowed him so, we couldn’t stop him. The President could have said ok SSS please find excuse to invite him for questioning the day before; put him away until the elections are over. But we won’t do that.

“That is not the change we promised. The change we promised is to try to improve in the ways public institutions are managed and how rules are implemented. I believe that it will be resolved.”
