The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu has presented 8,000 documents as exhibits against the victory of Governor Dapo Abiodun and the All-Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 18, 2023 governorship election.


In today’s hearing, counsel for Adebutu, Goddy Uche (SAN) presented the documents in various ‘bags before the Tribunal, stating that he had served the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Governor Abiodun and the APC, a 98-page schedule listing all the documents to be tendered before the court.


The documents, according to him include INEC forms, BVAS reports, voters’ registers and printed IREV results, while praying the court to allow him call his witnesses for the commencement of trial.


However, in a swift reaction, counsel for INEC, Peter Olatunbora objected to Uche’s prayers, arguing that the petitioners should have availed the respondents with the documents before presenting to the court.

The Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Hamidu Kunaza, in his ruling gave the petitioners two days to allow the respondents inspect the documents, before adjourning the case till thursday, July 6.
