Osun Election: Court Refuses To Stop Adeleke As PDP Gov Candidate

by

Justice David Oladimeji  of an Osun State High Court has said though the “document” submitted by Senator Ademola Adeleke has “some serious and damaging irregularities,” the court can’t stop him from contesting the Osun State governorship election as plaintiffs failed to prove the forgery allegation preferred against him.

Consequently, the court dismissed the suit seeking to stop Adeleke as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 22 election. Justice Oladimeji dismissed the suit in the ruling he delivered on Wednesday.

But the judge held that he found out that the first defendant was educated up to secondary school level and that he also admitted this in their affidavit. He, however, said the documents submitted by Adeleke contained some serious and damaging irregularities, but added that the plaintiffs did not raise the issue of forgery in the origination summon and failed to prove that the documents were forged.
