STATUE BARRED: Abiodun Floors Akinlade’s Preliminary Prayer On Certificate

The Ogun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal chaired by Justice Yusuf Halilu has struck out preliminary objections raised by Hon. Adekunle Akinlade in his petition seeking to disqualify Governor Dapo Abiodun on grounds of submitting false academic qualification.

The Tribunal ruled that the issue of information about academic qualification in Abiodun sworn affidavit had been laid to rest by the Appeal court, and so, petitioner can not be allowed to resurrect or open same matter at the Tribunal since the Appellate court had deemed it “statue barred.”

The Tribunal noted it would stand by the decision of the Appellate court, adding that the Petitioner also filed the application challenging Abiodun’s qualification outside the window of time allowed.

The Tribunal then proceeded to read the main judgement which is still ongoing as at the time of filing the report.
