Akinlade, APM appeal tribunal judgement in Ogun

The Allied Peoples Movement and its governorship candidate in the last general election in Ogun State, Adekunle Akinlade have formally appealed the judgement of the state election petitions tribunal at the court of appeal in Ibadan.

In the notice of appeal, APM  described the judgement by the tribunal as being against the weight of pieces of evidence presented before it during the trial of APM and Akinlade’s petition in the state.

Akinlade and APM had challenged the victory of the All Progressives Congress and its governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun at the March 9, 2019 governorship election.

The three-member tribunal led by Justice Yusuf  Halilu had in its judgement delivered on September 14, dismissed the petition filed by Akinlade and APM for being incompetent and lacking in merit and now they are appealing the judgement.
