Amosun and Isaka

The Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate, Prince Gboyega Isiaka has filed an appeal against the judgment of the State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which upheld the declaration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun as the winner of the April 11 governorship election in the State.

The suit, which was filed at the Court of Appeal, Ibadan Division, ‎on Tuesday November 10, had eight grounds of appeal.

In a copy of the notice of appeal, which was made available to journalists in Abeokuta, yesterday, listed Amosun, All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as respondents.

It would be recalled that the Ogun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abeokuta on October 23‎ dismissed Isiaka’s petition and upheld the election of the governor in the April 11 gubernatorial poll.

The Justice Henry Olusiyi-led tribunal had struck out the petition, saying the petitioners lacked evidence to support their allegation of massive rigging and electoral malpractices in the election.
