Oyo Election: Court Nullifies Adelabu Application Seeking Recount of Ballot Papers


An application filed by Adebayo Adelabu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to recount all the ballot papers used in the March 9 election has been dismissed by the Oyo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

The APC candidate is contesting the emergence of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) party’s candidate, Seyi Makinde.

Meanwhile on Monday, the tribunal dismissed the application.


The court argued that the petitioners were only challenging the result of a few local government areas in the conduct of the election and not all the 33 local government areas of the state.

They dismissed the application and fixed June 10 for the commencement of the hearing.
