Oyo: PDP Presents Four Witnesses to Prove Victory
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presented four witnesses to prove its victory at the Oyo State Governorship Elections Petition Tribunal on Wednesday.
The four witnesses were; Oluyinka Babatunde who is the INEC collation officer in Ibadan North Local Government, Saheed Yusuf Oludayo of ward 12 Ibadan North, and Oladimeji Yinka of Ibadan North Local Government.
Counsel to second, third and fourth Respondents have earlier confirmed through their witnesses that the National Assembly election in Ibadan North was free, fair and credible.
However, the lead counsel to the first Respondent, Chief Akin Olujimi while cross examining the witnesses, argued that the number of accredited voters did not tally with the number of the documents obtained from the card reader.
He also argued that the number of accredited voters is not the same as the numbers of the thick voters on the registered list.
The Tribunal Chairman adjourned sitting to 19th August, 2019 when all parties will come to address the Tribunal.
