Tribunal strikes out Amosun, APC applications to dismiss petition
The two applications were brought separately by the 1st Respondent (Governor Ibikunle Amosun) and 2nd Respondent (the All Progressives Congress).
Isiaka had gone to the tribunal to challenge the results of nine out of the 20 local councils. Joined in the suit, are Amosun’s party, APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Chairman of the three-man tribunal, Justice Henry Olusiyi, said the applications were abuse of court processes and unnecessary waste of time of the tribunal.
The applications were brought pursuant to section 6 and section 36 (6) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and paragraphs 18 (1) – (4), 47 (1) and 53 (5) of the first schedule to the Electoral Act, 2010
