ACCORD Party (AP) governorship candidate in the last gubernatorial election, Senator Rashidi Ladoja yesterday described the judgment delivered by the Justice Mohammed Mayaki-led tribunal as a travesty of justice and vowed to challenge the verdict at the Appeal Court.

The tribunal had thrown out the petition filed by Ladoja and AP against the victory of Governor Abiola Ajimobi in the April 11, governorship election in the State

The former governor who spoke through the Director General of his campaign organisation, Adeolu Adeleke, at a press conference in the state capital accused the judges of inconsistency.

Adeleke who was former speaker of the State Assembly also faulted pronouncements by Governor Ajimobi against the AP and its candidate for dragging him to the tribunal. 

“It has been observed with dismay the series of verbal attacks launched by Ajimobi against Ladoja for exercising his fundamental human right of challenging the April 11 election. We wish to state unequivocally that no amount of attacks will stop Ladoja from retrieving his mandate through the instrumentality of law. The denial of justice at the lower court cannot make Ladoja to lose hope in the judiciary”, he said.
