The Osun Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo, on Monday, granted permission to Governor Gboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress (APC) consent to examine materials used for the July 16, governorship survey.
The tribunal likewise allowed the plaintiffs’ request to electronically check the voters’ register used for the election, as well as the election ballot papers.
Justice Tertsea Kume, the chairman of the tribunal, while granting the two applications (motion exparte) by the plaintiffs, ordered that Osun governor-elect, Sen. Ademola Adeleke, be summoned through ‘substitution of service of notice’.
Kume said that the notice of summon should be pasted on the notice board of the tribunal.
Prior, Chief Yomi Aliyu (SAN), the counsel to APC/Oyetola, while speaking on the two applications, said that every effort made by the court bailiff to serve Adeleke the notice of summon failed.
He said the bailiff went to his home at Aisu, Ede, however, the security guards dismissed the bailiff after a call was made to somebody in the house that directed them not to collect the summon notice.
