It seems Adekunle Akinlade, the gubernatorial candidate of Allied People’s Movement (APM) in Ogun State in the 2019 election is sparing nothing in ensuring that he retrieves his ‘stolen mandate’ at the Tribunal.
Daily Post reports that the former lawmaker stormed the election petition tribunal sitting in Isabo, Abeokuta with several ‘Ghana Must Go’ bags containing electoral evidences to prove his case beyond reasonable doubts.
TheEcho recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Dapo Abiodun, as the winner of the March 9 gubernatorial election held in the state.
Akinlade who petitioned the election tribunal, citing irregularities in the election, approached the court with nothing less than 7 Ghana-must-go bags containing certified true copies of electoral materials from different local governments.
According to the report, the tribunal admitted in evidence, forms EC8A from different wards in Abeokuta North and Ado Odo Otta local governments, as counsels to INEC, Governor Abiodun, and the APC did not object to the evidence.
Speaking at the end of the sitting, Akinlade said that“We shall be willing to have the answers to our questions (asked and yet unasked) at the said sitting.
“Once again, we thank the good people of Ogun State for their continuous support, and we shall regularly bring the details of proceedings at the tribunal to the notice of the general public until our mandate is restored.”
