Oyo State: PDP Wins At Tribunal, Trash APC

The House of Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Ibadan has upheld the elections of two legislators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Oyo State Assembly.

The three-man panel of justices Tribunal led by D. M. Igyuse upheld the elections of Messrs Olasunkanmi Babalola (Egbeda State Constituency) and Akeem Adeshina (Iwajowa State Constituency).

We had reported that the duo were dragged before the Tribunal by their All Progressives Congress (APC) opponents in the last general election to challenge their victory.

Babalola, who is the Deputy Majority leader of the Oyo Assembly, was dragged to the Tribunal by Mr Olalekan Usman, while Adeshina was challenged at the Tribunal by Mr Johnson Eroyalesun.

In its ruling on Monday, the Tribunal dismissed the separate petitions on account that the petitioners could neither prove nor establish their claims of irregularities in the election.
