Osun guber: Court adjourns ruling on Adeleke’s certificate scandal

The Osun State High Court sitting in Osogbo has adjourned till tomorrow, Thursday, the ruling on interlocutory order seeking to nullify the election of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship flag bearer.

This bordered on his alleged certificate scandal relating to his secondary school result.

Two members of PDP in the State had asked the court, among other things, to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from accepting the name of Senator Adeleke as the party’s candidate in the September 22 governorship election.

After listening to the submission of counsel to the plaintiffs, Barrister Olufemi Ayandokun, the presiding judge, Justice David Oladimeji stated that he had to study the bulk processes filed by the applicants to be able to give ruling on the matter.

Newsflash247 reports that following the primary election of the party held on Saturday, in which Adeleke was declared winner with 1569 votes, against his closest rival, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, who polled a total of 1562, some members of the party have rejected the outcome of the election, citing some irregularities.

Hundreds of the aggrieved members had on Monday blocked the Osogbo-Ikirun road, demanding for the cancellation of the exercise.

They accused the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus of complicity.
