Adeleke Awaits appeal Court Final Decision Tomorrow, Would There Be A Dance Move?

Tomorrow could usher in a new dance move by Senator Ademola Adeleke if the decision of the appeal court goes his way in  the battle for Osun governorship.

The appeal court has fixed tomorrow, May 9, 2019, to deliver judgment on petition filed against the All Progressive Congress Candidate, Gboyega Oyetola who was declared winner at the polls and since been sworn in as governor.

The PDP’s candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, and his party had approached the panel contesting the declaration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola of APC as winner of the polls.

He had led the first ballot before losing the second and final after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared that the slim margin was not enough to return him, thus an inconclusive election.

The electoral body later fixed a runoff for September 30, 2018 where the governor eventually emerged victorious.

Dissatisfied with the outcome, Adeleke and the PDP headed for the tribunal, asking it to set Oyetola’s victory aside and declare the petitioner winner.

The Director, Publicity and Strategy of APC, Kunle Oyatomi, said the “party is very optimistic. We expect to win. We have no fear whatsoever to believe that the judgment will be negative.”

On his party, the state coordinator of PDP, Dele Adeleke, said the party expects nothing short of victory. Adeleke also shared same feeling.

The police had on Tuesday arraigned Senator Ademola Adeleke before a Magistrate’s Court in Mpape, Abuja, on charges of forgery.

He was accused in the fresh five counts of forging academic qualification documents including a letter of attestation and the West African School Certificate from Muslim Grammar School, Ede, Osun State.

The police alleged that the senator submitted the forged documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission as the PDP’s candidate in the 2017 Osun West Senatorial District election and 2018 governorship election in Osun State.

He pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to him before the magistrate, Muhammed Suberu, who granted him bail in the sum of N2m with one surety.

The magistrate ruled that the surety must be a resident within the jurisdiction of the court.

Already, the police are prosecuting him on amended seven counts of examination malpractices before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The Federal High Court had on Friday granted him permission to travel to the United States of America.
