The Man Who Convinced Osun State Tribunal To Declare Adeleke As The New Governor Of Osun State.

This is Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu ( SAN)

He is a Nigerian lawyer and also a senior advocate of Nigeria.

A brilliant lawyer and one of the finest Nigerian lawyers alive.

Dr Ikpeazu’s forte is election petition and let me explain why:

Dr Ikpeazu is Adeleke’s head of legal team that is handling his matter in court.

This man brilliantly came up with the argument that INEC returning Officer as it were lacked the locus to cancel the Osun state governorship concluded election.

His reasons were simple: Our electoral laws did not empower the Returning officer to do so and to his credit, Osun state tribunal members affirmed his brilliant argument by declaring his client winner.

Dr Ikpeazu will be leading Adeleke’s legal team all the way to Supreme Court and I know that with his deep profound knowledge of our electoral laws and his sheer brilliance which is beautiful to watch, victory is sure for the maligned Adeleke.

But aside this, what many people did not know that this was the same man that got the court to cancel Chris Ngige’s stolen mandate as the brief governor of Anambra state and then declare the not so popular Peter Obi as the governor of Anambra state in 2006.

Dr Ikpeazu marshaled his argument with eloquence and conviction from the lower court to Appeal court that Peter Gregory Obi was rigged out by Chris Uba and Ngige with iron clad evidences attached, the court after hearing his brilliant submission from this Onitsha born lawyer and with the evidences on their table can’t help but declare Peter Obi as the rightful governor of Anambra state even when many pessimists thought it was impossible for the court to do so at that time.

What this means is that he is the first Lawyer in our history to convince a Nigerian court to send a sitting governor packing.

And he is about to repeat the same feat with Adeleke.

What a man! History they say has a way of repeating itself.

An evasive and a quiet family man that shuns media publicity and the glamour associated with senior silk in this part. He prefers his work to do the talking for him.

A giant and a colossus of the legal profession.

Take a bow Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu! You have done well sir and history will remember the role you played in advancing and shaping our legal profession.

but he did the right thing. What about the one in charge of onnoghen trial Umar yakassai so that a sharia judge could be planted there, they removed onnoghen within 3 days. The one assisting yakassai je omo yoruba bi temi. But they messed up big time. At last, all the charges were dropped for lack of merit. I wish I was onnoghen right now, I'd have sued the FG for defamation to the time of 10b naira.

Atiku Abubakar and PDP should considere hiring him to lead their legal battle against Inec and APC.


Who knows he could as well be the first lawyer in our history to convince a Nigerian court to send a sitting President packing.

The write up said that he was the one who defended Peter Obi against Ngige.
Obi ran as vice president to Atiku in this election. I am sure his name had come up when the legal team was been chosen.
Who knows, he may be among the 20 SANs defending Atiku.
If not, Peter Obi may have his reasons.

Anambra born Onyechi was the same badass lawyer that saved Peter Obi in 2006 by getting the supreme court to restore his mandate.
