Osun elections: Tribunal grants Adeleke’s request to inspect INEC materials

Court grants Adeleke request

Osun Election Tribunal in Osogbohave have granted the request of Sen. Ademola Adeleke, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) governor-elect, to inspect the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) materials and as well agreed on his request to conduct forensic audit on the BVAS machine.

A counsel of Adeleke, Mr Hashim Abioye, disclosed this to newsmen after the proceeding in Osun state.


He said, because of the need was to conduct a thorough forensic audit of the BVAS machine used for the election, Justice Tertsea Kume, the Chairman of the Tribunal, granted Adeleke’s application to inspect and conduct forensic audit of the BVAS machines

Even though INEC had declared Sen. Ademola Adeleke, governor -elect, as winner of the Osun July 16 governorship elections, where he defeated the incumbent, Oyetola, it will be recalled that Gov. Gboyega Oyetola and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) had earlier requested to inspect materials used for the poll, he also filed a suit challenging the victory of Adeleke at the governorship election dragging both INEC and Adeleke to court through his lead counsel, Mr Yomi Aliyu (SAN).
