Former Osun State , Rauf Aregbesola says the judgment of the Petition Tribunal last Friday, which nullified the of Governor Gboyega Oyetola will not stand.

The tribunal had declared Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as winner.

Aregbesola, in a statement Wednesday night by his Media Adviser, Mr. Sola Fasure, said the was a rude shock.

He said the majority judgment, as delivered by their Lordship, did not support the cause of electoral justice and might constitute the death knell for properly conducted elections.

Aregbesola said the people rejected the majority judgment and believe that it would not stand scrutiny at the appellate court.

The statement noted that the majority judgment, which held that the rerun election conducted in seven polling units on the September 27, 2018, was illegal, null and void, was equally shocking and amounts to a travesty of justice.

He said the government would appeal the judgment, adding that the verdict would be upturned.

The former governor wondered why elections in 17 polling units would be annulled when there was no evidence of any act known to render them null and void in an election petition, such as over-voting, non-accreditation, ballot box stuffing among others.

Aregbesola contended that concern for substantive justice should have dictated that since the results from the 17 units were duly signed and adjudged by to be authentic, there should not have been any controversy over there validity.

He lamented that the tribunal has effectively disenfranchised the legitimate voters in the 17 polling units and rendered the election undemocratic.

The statement said: “In nullifying the elections in the 17 polling units, the majority judgment predicated it on what is regarded as ‘substantial non-compliance’ with the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010. The said non-compliance, according to the judgment, borders on the failure of INEC’s appointed presiding officers to record accreditation and ballot accounting on the result forms in the 17 polling units.

“There was no evidence of any act known to render election null and void in an election petition such as over voting, non-accreditation, ballot box stuffing etc.

“This much was highlighted in the dissenting judgment of the Chairman of the Tribunal in disagreeing with the majority decision.

“It must be noted that APC and its candidate were not accused of any electoral malfeasance in the 17 polling units. Rather, INEC, a common agent of PDP and APC (and indeed, all the political parties), which neither of the parties has control over was merely accused of not complying with its manual for the election, when the presiding officers appointed for the election failed to make the entries.

“Therefore, the most relevant question one would pose here is: should the tribunal allow APC to suffer as a result of the or omissions occasioned by the INEC staff? Certainly, no!”

“Equally shocking are the reasons advanced by the two justices. They advanced the proposition that elections in the seven polling units were cancelled by the state collation officer. This was not the case. There were no elections in the seven polling units, and if there was any, the onus was on the petitioners. This onus was not discharged in anyway as no results was tendered.

“The state collation officer in compliance with the margin of lead principle rightly reasoned that the outcomes of the elections could not be determined without conducting polls in the affected elections. Hence the commission’s decision to conduct supplementary elections in line with these principles.”

Omokri blasts Buhari for picking another northerner as Magu’s replacement

Published

on

By

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted following the appointment of Mohammed Umar as head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in the absence of its suspended acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

Omokri wondered why a Northerner was picked to head EFCC in the absence of Magu.

In a tweet, the former presidential aide wondered if no Southerner was credible enough to head the anti-graft agency.

Magu is being probed by a panel constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari over allegations of corrupt practices.

This followed corrupt allegations raised against Magu by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

In Magu’s absence, Umar was picked to coordinate the activities of the commission.

Reacting, Omokri in a tweet wrote: “Is there any law that says @officialEFCC Chairmen can only come from the North? Magu goes and is replaced with another Northerner, Mohammed Umar.

Stern looking security operatives on Tuesday morning took over the complex of the Ondo State House of Assembly.

With about 10 vans belonging to the men of the Nigeria Police and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, the security operatives mounted strategic locations within and outside the Assembly.

Meanwhile, journalists who were at the complex to monitor the day’s proceedings were turned back by the security personnel.

One of the security operatives told DAILY POST exclusively that the directive was given by the leadership of the house.

He added that only three journalists from government-owned medium will be allowed to cover the proceedings.

The sitting might not be unconnected with the plan to begin impeachment proceeding against the embattled deputy of the state, Agboola Ajayi.
