The Lawmaker representing Obokun/Oriade Federal Constituency, Hon. Busayo Oluwole Oke (BOO) has described the majority judgment of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal as a mere dramatic judicial comedy that recorded a complete and a total deviation from all known established principles of Electoral Laws in Nigeria.
Hon Oke noted in a release he personally signed that the judgment was full of holes and gaps difficult to be filled, thus exposing the shanenigan of the presiding judges.
“The judgment to say the least stinks. It should be investigated by the Judicial Service Commission with a view to exposing the undercurrents in the matter.”
The Chairman, House Committee on Public Accounts who is also a lawyer in his official reaction to the judgement, said
he has perused the
judgement and discovered that it was a travesty not rooted in law, but a drama on theatrical for the birds and not rational beings.
According to him, ” I have read the split judgements critically.The judgement absolutely was not based on evidence and facts presented in the open court. It was also a clear and unfortunate departure from many decisions of superior courts of records.”
He enthused that “the judgement was indeed a grotesque comedy based on fabricated fictions.
Hon Oke lamented that the judgement comically ignored some relevant facts and rules of evidence, especially on what the courts do when there are conflicting avalanche documents
that must be combed and brushed by the judex.
Hon Oke regretted the attempts by the Tribunal to frustrate the painstaking efforts of members of the National Assembly to strengthen the electoral process with approval of the use of Bimodal Voters Accreditation System in support of other paper documentations in conducting elections in Nigeria, which according to him gave credibility to the the Osun State Gubernatorial Election.
He noted that the Tribunal had impliedly in connivance with some political class put into jeopardy every reforms and investments made by the Federal Government of Nigeria and Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) in their efforts to deepen our democracy.
Hon. Oke however expressed optimism in the Appellate Courts, saying that
“thank God that there are two higher stairs to go on the ladder, l am optimistic that the comedic judgment cannot stand at appellate courts. It is bound to collapse.
The people of Osun State have clearly spoken in the election that brought in Ademola Adeleke and will frown at any illegitimate mean to deny them the light Governor Adeleke has brought into the State.”
In view of this, the Esa-Oke born Lawmaker however appealed to the people of Oriade/Obokun Federal Constituency and entire people of Osun State to remain calm as they repose their confidence in the ability of the Appellate Courts to correct the ‘buga’ comedy by the Tribunal and restore the mandate freely given to Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke in the July 16th 2022 election by the good people of Osun.
