The Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Oyo State, South-West Nigeria, has upheld the election of Governor Abiola Ajimobi in the April 11 polls.

The judgment was delivered on Tuesday by the Justice Mohammed Aliyu Mayaki-led election Petition Tribunal, amidst tight security around the premises of the sitting.

The petition was filed by the Accord Party governorship flag bearer, Senator Rashidi Ladoja.

Justice Mayaki in his ruling submitted that the petitioner failed to link the evidences before the tribunal to specific portions of the petition.

He declared that the petitioner lacked the ability to prove evidence before the tribunal.

According to him, all the witnesses invited by the petitioner presented contradictory evidence before the tribunal.

Meanwhile, various forms if celebrations have started across the state but the security agents are still on ground in strategic places to avoid any breakdown of law and order.

Security had been beefed up in areas surrounding the premises of the Iyaganku Magistrate Court in Ibadan, the state capital, where the proceedings would take place.

Security officials led by the state’s Commissioner of Police, Adeleye Oyebade, cordoned off all access roads to the court, while traffic control efforts were doubled due to the diversions.

Shops around the courts were also closed down, while everyone entering the court premises including lawyers were thoroughly searched. (Channels TV)
