Tribunal dismisses APM petition against Ogun Speaker, Oluomo

The election petition tribunal sitting in Abeokuta has upheld the election of the Speaker of Ogun State House Assembly, Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, as the lawmaker representing Ifo Constituency 1.

A three-member panel of the tribunal, headed by Justice Adenike Coker, on Friday dismissed the suit by Wemimo Owolabi, of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging the election of Oluomo.

Justice Coker ruled that the evidence submitted by the petitioner was insufficient to nullify the election of Oluomo, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting to the news, the speaker thanked the Judiciary for being the hope of the common man.

He assured that the tribunal judgement would further spur him into more performance at the helms of the state legislature.

Prince Oluomo stated that, “the people of Ifo-1 Constituency deserved good representation at the state Assembly, promising not to betray the trust and love reposed in him.”

He further urged all aggrieved parties to put their grievances behind them and pitch their tents with him in a bid to ensure good representation and governance.
