Former Osun State , Rauf Aregbesola says the judgment of the Petition Tribunal last Friday, which nullified the of 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.”

INEC SPEAKS ON ATIKU’S DEMAND FOR ELECTRONIC SERVER, REVEALS WHY TRIBUNAL SHOULD THROW OUT CASE

inec speaks on atiku’s demand for electronic server, reveals why tribunal should throw out case INEC SPEAKS ON ATIKU’S DEMAND FOR ELECTRONIC SERVER, REVEALS WHY TRIBUNAL SHOULD THROW OUT CASE Atiku Abubakar e1555491875795 653x365

On Thursday February 23rd, 2019, 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, 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.
