BREAKING: Akeredolu Floors Jegede At Tribunal Again
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu









Ondo State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Akure, will today deliver judgement in the petition filed by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede, against the victory of Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the October 2020 gubernatorial election.

The chairman of the three member panel, Justice Umar Abubakar had last week fixed the judgement for Wednesday through a notice but in another notice issued on Monday evening by the Tribunal Secretary, parties involved in the case were informed that the date has changed to Tuesday, April 20.

Aside that, it was also said that the judgement would now be delivered via ZOOM and not in a regular court sitting.

Counsel of both the PDP and APC were said to have been duly informed on Monday evening that the ruling has been brought forward to Tuesday.

Recall that Eyitayo Jegede of the PDP and his party had approached the tribunal, asking that he should be declared winner of the October 10, 2020 governorship election in the state, in which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), returned Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of the APC for a second term as governor of the state.

The two parties had in February this year adopted their written addresses following which the tribunal subsequently reserved judgement to a later date “that will be communicated to both parties in the case in this month.
