Governorship Election: Oyo APC May Appeal Against Tribunal Judgement


By Richard Thomas, Ibadan

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has said  it may appeal the tribunal  judgement delivered against Chief Bayo Adelabu on the March 9, governorship election.

It also said it  received the judgment of the Governorship Elections Petition Tribunal sitting in the state with dismay.

The three-member tribunal led by Justice Muhammed Sirajo had in their unanimous judgment dismissed the petition filed by Chief Adebayo Adelabu, the APC candidate in the governorship election for lack of merit.

Adelabu had dragged Gov. Seyi Makinde, who is the PDP candidate in the election, before the tribunal to challenge his victory at the poll.

The party in a press statement signed by its publicity secretary AbdulAzeez Olatunde said  “The State Working Committee of the Party in its Proactive manner has decided to refer the Tribunal Ruling to our team of Legal Experts for necessary recommendation which the Party hopes to follow appropriately.”

“It thanked members of the party for being law abiding and assured them and and their sympathizers to await for the next line of action, in due course.

But an impeccable source in the party said the party is not satisfy with the tribunal judgement and may appeal against the judgement
