Osun Election: See What Appeal Court Decided Today On Senator Adeleke’s Case

Senator Ademola Adeleke

The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, over Senator Ademola Adeleke’s eligibility in the September 2018 governorship election in Osun State, has adjourned till May 8, 2019.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN reports that the appellate court had on April 25, adjourned hearing on the appeal on account of improper service.

At the resumed sitting Thursday, a similar situation played out and it forced the Justice Abubakar Yayaha led-panel to adjourn hearing.

Yahaya said the matter could not be heard, because of a pending Notice of Appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the same matter.

“We are not going to consolidate the appeals, but it is only proper for us to hear all the appeals on similar subject matter on the same day.

“We have seen that most of the processes have been exchanged but the PDP appeal against the judgment challenging the appellant’s qualification to contest the Osun Governorship election must be heard alongside Adeleke’s appeal.

“In the circumstance, hearing on Adeleke’s appeal and the PDP’s appeal marked CA/A/326/2017 is adjourned until May 8.

“The hearing notice should by served on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC),” Yahaya said.

Adeleke had approached the appellate court, to challenge the decision of Justice Othman Musa of the FCT High Court in Bwari, Abuja, which invalidated his status as PDP governorship candidate on April 2.
