The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State, has described as untrue, media reports that the ongoing election petition tribunal ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to produce the certificate of the governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke.
The party in a statement by its Chairman, Dr. Adekunle Akindele, said the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Governor AdegboyegaOyetola merely sought to subpoena the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, in the state.
“Secondly, the documents he submitted to INEC in 2018 was what the APC used to persecute him and sponsored malicious cases against him, in respect of which he had been vindicated up to the Supreme Court. We want to assure members of the public that the APC and Oyetola are trying to fetch water from a dry well by their petition at the tribunal, which is a mirage.
“May we inform members of the public that since the beginning of hearing at the tribunal, the APC and Oyetolalawyers have been helplessly wandering and dancing around their petition. No single witness has ever been called. The public can do a fact check on this at the tribunal as they would discover that the petitioners have been indolent and unserious with their case.
