The Ogun State governorship election petition tribunal sitting in Abeokuta, the state capital, has affirmed the election of Mr. Ibikunle Amosun as Governor.

Delivering his judgement, Chairman of the three-man tribunal, Justice Henry Olusiyi also dismissed the petition by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in the election, Gboyega Isiaka, for lack of merit.

The Ogun PDP had approached the tribunal asking it to nullify the election of the governor over alleged malpractice and non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2010, as amended.

Meanwhile, Mr. Gboyega Isiaka has appealed to his supporters to remain calm and not to engage in any act of lawlessness.

Reacting to the tribunal verdict that affirmed the election of Governor Ibikunle Amosun, the Ogun PDP candidate urged his supporters to respect the decision of the court and remain law abiding.

He said, “I am appealing to all and sundry to respect the decision of the court. Though the verdict did not go the way that would have gladdened the hearts of many people in the state, but as law abiding and responsible citizens, we are duty bound to respect the verdict.

“We shall carefully study the judgement as soon as possible and will make public our next line of action. But my appeal goes to all our supporters and those that might have been disappointed with the judgement to remain calm, we still have many options available to us but that decision will be made very soon.” (Channels TV)
