Court Reserves Judgment In Akoko APC Primary Election Case



The Federal High Court sitting in Akure has reserved its judgement to a date to be communicated to the parties involved in the APC primary election case in Akoko South East & South West Federal Constituency.

At the resumed sitting of the Court, the Presiding judge having listened to the Counsel to the litigants after the adoption of their briefs and final written address, said the day for judgement would be communicated to the parties.

It would be recalled that Dr. Olusegun Ategbole had gone back to the Court in Suit number FHC/AK/134/2022 asking the Court to declare him as the winner of the Court Ordered Primary election held on November 29, 2022.

He alleged that 17 names of persons who were not delegates were injected into the delegates list used for the conduct of the election.

Dr. Ategbole prayed the court to deduct the vote of the 17 persons and declare him winner of the primary election.

Counsel to the Plaintiff, Dr. Remi Olatubora, SAN said the petitioner is in court to find out how names that are not on the initial delegates list found its way into the list used for the election.

The Court session was not without drama as one of the persons listed as witness to the defendant confronted his lawyer and claimed he never deposed to affidavit to the defendants that he did not vote in the election.

He said he was procured to vote in the name of a man who had died by the defendants.

The Plaintiff also played a video to the Court to establish his case.
