Will the Supreme Court make pronouncement twice on the same case?

Osun Tribunal Admits Adeleke's Certificates as Exhibits.
-- As Oyetola, APC Close Case

The Osun State Election Petition Tribunal on Saturday admitted in evidence the file with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) containing the secondary school certificate and testimonial of Governor Ademola Adeleke of the State.

This is just as the Petitioners, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress (APC), closed the prosecution of the matter, leaving respondents to state their defence.

The admission of the documents followed the appearance of INEC representative, Mrs. Joan Arabs, who brought Adeleke's original files containing the certificate he submitted to the Commission in 2018.

It will be recalled that during the last sitting of the panel, the Commission had submitted blank document as the secondary school certificate of the governor, a situation that compelled the panel to order that the original file be brought, and to threaten to invoke Coercive Power if it fails to do so.

At the resumed hearing of the petition on Saturday, Counsel for Oyetola, Chief Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), said the hearing for the day was basically meant for the appearance of INEC representative to produce the Adeleke's file in line with the court order.

Counsel for INEC, in his response, said that INEC representative was already in court with the files containing a clearer and legible certificate and testimonial in question, saying he would be willing to apply for the return of the documents to INEC, when the tribunal is done looking at it.

After the production of the documents, the tribunal, while discharging the INEC official, said, "You can now go if you wish to. No policeman will accost you again."

Subsequently, Oyetola's counsel sought to tender the documents which contain form CFO01 and its attachments, including Adeleke's credentials, saying the original file brought to court is a primary evidence and he was comfortable with it.

Counsel for INEC, Chief Henry Agunedo (SAN), said he would be objecting to the admissibility of the documents on the ground that the basis for the production of the whole file was because only two pages of the earlier-produced Certified True Copies were in contention, saying tendering the whole documents was out of place.

Counsel for Adeleke and PDP, Niyi Owolade and Alex Izinyon (SAN) respectively, said they have objection to the tendering of the said documents, but they would reserve their objections till final address stage.

Izinyon also observed that the only documents in contention were only two pages which are Adeleke's certificate and testimonial, saying the CTC earlier produced has not been tendered before the court.

Responding, Fagbemi said the practice everywhere is that INEC can only apply and get back the files after the dispensation of the cases, saying, "We asked for CTC and now that they brought this. We are fine, we will take it".

Ruling on the documents tendered, the tribunal led by Tertsea Kume admitted the credentials and the Adeleke's nomination form as exhibit 'FILE D' and taken as read.

It was after the tribunal admitted the documents that Fagbemi informed the panel that he had decided to close his case, saying, "My Lord, we rest our case".

When the tribunal asked INEC to open his defence, Chief Agunedo said, it would be difficult for him to open his case on Monday, saying non-availability of his witnesses would make it practically impossible.

The panel then asked the counsel to meet and agree on adjournment date after which Counsel for INEC briefed the panel the outcome of the meeting.

Subsequently, the tribunal adjourned the case till December 20 for the respondents to open their defence, saying the adjournment was based on another engagement by the tribunal somewhere else between 12th and 19th December 2022.

Earlier, Oyetola's counsel had informed the panel that the Court of Appeal in Abuja had reverted the judgement of a Federal High Court which disqualified Oyetola from contesting the election.

Meanwhile, the outcome of the sitting excited the members of the APC who witnessed the hearing, as jubilations erupted after the sitting of the panel. They chanted songs to eulogise Oyetola and the APC.


Fergie,it seems adeleke has been cornered.I dont know but it seems the fake certificate he tendered in 2018 was what inec brought and apc now brought the originals.
Now the constitution clearly said a candidate will be disq if he has ever submitted a forged certificate to inec via white lion case.this is backed by extant inec regulations and affidavits.
Inec defence won't take much time.highest one week.it is now left for pdp and adeleke defence to start work.since deadline is 29 Jan,defence has till Jan 10.

What actually is the APC case in the tribunal? What Oyetola and APC called over-voting is due to non-synchronisation of BVAS before its report was printed. The synchronised data from BVAS shows no such thing. It will interest you to know that the unsynchronised BVAS report shows alleged over-voting where both APC and PDP won. INEC defense will show the futility of this shout of over-voting, reason APC themselves only called 2 witnesses out of 300 to prove the over-voting. Nothing is there.

There's synchronisation with BVAS. You will get to know what it means when INEC opens her defense. Do you know the same is applicable in some polling units where APC won too?

APC did not tender any Certificate in Court. I repeat.....none

INEC defence won't be one week because the tribunal judges said they will be busy from 10th-19th Dec.

INEC brought the originals... Like I told you over-voting is dead, the two witnesses just dumped documents in Court. This issue is the live one.

It is just jargons except more than one device is used in which case all data will simply add up.ok why are they not synchronizing results but just accredited votes?
All apc is saying is that cancelled all units with overvoting and declare the available winner which is apc
Re: Appeal Court Affirms Oyetola, Running Mate As APC Candidates by adee17: 6:07pm On Dec 03, 2022
Alright, I stand to be corrected. Now if the appeal court has ruled that the certificate is not forged, can election tribunal, which has same jurisdiction with high court overrule appeal court?

Sorry,they didn't tender anything.they only relied onwhaty inec tendered which contains what apc needed.
Bvas reports or overvoting doesn't require witnesses,it is a live data that is self-explanatory

Re: Appeal Court Affirms Oyetola, Running Mate As APC Candidates by shanaka4u(m): 6:16pm On Dec 03, 2022
I think the issues involved in this petition are purely documentary and as such the number of witnesses will be very few. A witness cannot change the contents of a documentary evidence. That explains why APC called just 2 witnesses. I won't be surprised if INEC calls only one witness.
Re: Appeal Court Affirms Oyetola, Running Mate As APC Candidates by babajero(m): 6:18pm On Dec 03, 2022
They gave the judgement because they know if they don't it will affect all apc candidates. Law in Nigeria is corrupt.

Have you seen the content or originals of what INEC submitted?
Are you also aware, it was shared with Adeleke's lawyers before they were tendered?

Bvas reports or overvoting doesn't require witnesses,it is a live data that is self-explanatory.
Out of their listed 300 witnesses?
When they open defence, we will know where it's headed.

E no far again....
Re: Appeal Court Affirms Oyetola, Running Mate As APC Candidates by adee17: 6:21pm On Dec 03, 2022
In that case, APC is wasting their time on two grounds. One, let's assume APC has a certificate in their possession different from the what adeleke
submitted in 2018, they goofed by not calling WAEC as witness. APC is not the maker of WAEC certificate and cannot authenticate it or otherwise. Two, issue of certificate or qualification is not a ground to contest an election result in a tribunal. It's a pre-election matter and only those who participate in a primary election have ground to sue according to 2022 electoral act.

Re: Appeal Court Affirms Oyetola, Running Mate As APC Candidates by adee17: 6:25pm On Dec 03, 2022
I wonder too. The reason supreme Court gave for not nullify Akeredolu election is because the appellant didn't join Buni in the suit. Now they join him, appeal court is saying something different.
Let's wait and see what the Supreme Court will say again if and when the case get to them.

Re: Appeal Court Affirms Oyetola, Running Mate As APC Candidates by adee17: 6:30pm On Dec 03, 2022
Actually APC is clever by half. The unsynchronised BVAS reports show that up to 1700 polling units alleged over-voting. Out of this about 700 were where Adeleke won while the rest is where Oyetola won. If the tribunal will go by these unsynchronised reports, and cancel election results there, pdp will still win.

Let INEC open their defence first!

INEC will use the BVAS machine, Voter's Register and Form EC8A.
Isiaka Olanrewaju even helped the defence in that. Over-voting thing is dead.
