Tribunal Orders INEC to Produce Osun-Governor Elect Adeleke’s Academic Certificates

JUST IN: Oyetola Loses As Adeleke Wins Osun Governorship Election

Osun Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Osogbo has ordered Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to produce the results the governor elect, Ademola Adeleke used during the 2018 governorship election in Osun.

Gatekeepers News reports that the document tagged “INEC Form CF001” is being demanded by the petitioner, counsel for the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The Tribunal Chairman, Justice Tertsea Kume gave the order in his ruling on the arguments and counterarguments by both the petitioners and the respondent’s counsel as regards the INEC Form CF001 on Friday.

Kume said it would amount to denying the petitioners their right to a fair hearing, after the respondent (INEC) had failed to comply with the subpoena order as regards what the petitioners were demanding.

According to him, the Osun Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Mutiu Agboke, represented by one Shehu Muhammed, failed to produce Form CF001 on the excuse that they do not have the document in their custody in the state.

Kume said that the petitioner had shown enough grounds with regard to their application/subpoena request.

The Tribunal Chairman ordered INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu to produce the document on the next date of adjournment.

Kume, therefore, adjourned the case until December 1, 2022, for further hearing.
