The hearing of an appeal filed by Sen. Ademola Adekele, the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, candidate for Osun State in the September 2018 governorship , was on Thursday stalled in the Court of Appeal, Abuja on account of improper service.

Adeleke had approached the appellate court to challenge the decision of Justice Othman Musa of the FCT High Court in Bwari, Abuja made April 2, which invalidated his status as PDP governorship candidate.

News Agency of (NAN) recalls that Wahab Raheem and Adam Habeeb, both of the Osun Chapter of All Progressive (APC) instituted the , accusing Adeleke of not possessing the requisite educational qualification.

At the resumed hearing, Mr Bankole Komolafe, Counsel for Raheem and Habeeb, drew the attention of the court that four vital pages of the Notice of Appeal served on him were not included.

Komolafe also submitted that the development had prevented him to file his respondents’ brief.

Mr. Nathaniel Oke (SAN), Counsel for Adeleke earlier told the court that he had met all condition for preparatory for the definite hearing of the appeal.

Oke informed that court that the four listed respondents were duly and promptly served with the Notice of Appeal on April 15.

He, therefore, described the inability of the counsel to the first (Raheem) and second (Habeeb) respondents to file his client’s responses as a violation of the court’s practice direction which allowed them only five days to respond.

Komolafe subsequently countered Oke’s argument, saying that it was misleading for Oke to rest his submission on the court’s practice direction on a pre-election matter.

Justice Stephen Adah, leading two other justices of the court upheld Komolafe’s argument and discountenance Oke’s line of thought.

“If you have errors in your record, it is your responsibility to correct them.

“Why do you have to serve counsel with incomplete process and still go ahead to put the blame on them?

“This is not an election petition, so the practice direction where respondents are only given five days to respond to processes applied.

“In the circumstance, you must correct the record and give them time to respond. The matter is therefore adjourned until May 2 for hearing of the appeal’’, Adah held.

The other respondents are APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission ()

NAN reports that Adeleke is praying the appellate court to set aside the judgment of the trial court as according to him, the court relies on inadmissible evidence to arrive at the decision.

The trial court’s findings showed that Adeleke was admitted into Muslim High , Ede, Osun State in 1976, but without a record showing that he graduated.

The court also found that the results Adeleke attached to INEC’s form CF001 contradicted the one presented to the court by the Principal of Ede Muslim High School where he claimed to have graduated.

NAN reports that Adeleke has since been returned as duly elected of the state by the Osun State Election Tribunal, but that decision is being challenged by Adegboyega Oyetola, APC candidate in that election.

    I think everything wrote was very reasonable. But, think on this,
    what if you were to write a awesome headline? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but suppose you
    added a post title to possibly get people’s attention? I
    mean Adeleke’s WAEC certificate: What happened in court on Thursday is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post headlines to get
    viewers interested. You might add a related video or a picture
    or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more
    interesting.

    Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

“You cannot isolate the people you govern and expect to get the necessary cooperation and support needed to tackle issues like security.

“That’s why they must try to carry the state governors along if they hope to decisively tackle the security challenges.”

On what happened in the Rivers state during the gubernatorial , Secondus said that those who played god with the did not realize that there real God was in charge in the state.

“They were in Abuja playing God sending military saying it will never happen but they forgot that nobody can surmount the army of God.”

Secondus praised the people of Rivers State for standing up in defence of democracy pointing out that the supreme sacrifice of deaths and other stress they were subjected to during the election cannot be in vain.
