The Ondo State election petition tribunal sitting in Akure will deliver judgement on April 2021.

This comes after the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate, Eyitayo Jegede filed a motion challenging the victory of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in the October 2020 election.

In his final arguement, Counsel to the petitioner, Onyechi Ikpeazu accused the defence counsel of trying to trivialize a constitutional matter.

meanwhile, Counsel to Akeredolu and his deputy Lucky Aiyedatiwa, Akin Olujimi and the APC’s Counsel Lateef Fagbemi, while adopting their separate written addresses, appealed to the tribunal to dismiss Jegede’s petition for chasing shadows and wasting the time of the jurists.

Tribunal chairman, Justice Umar Abubakar commended all counsel for their cooperation to date and assured them that Judgement will be given in April on a date that will be communicated to all parties in due course.
