Certificate Saga: PDP Candidate (Adeleke) May lose Seat to the 1st Runner-Up

There may be a change of baton any time soon especially as it relates to PDP flag bearering in the Osun 2018 gubernitorial election. With judgement delivered:

“…….the plaintiffs’ counsel argued that the Testimonials and the Statement of Results presented by counsel to Senator Adeleke counsel on the senator education up to secondary school level, submitted before the court and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, were forged.

He noted that Osun State was created in 1991 and that the document which was dated and purportedly issued in 1988 at Muslim Grammar School Ede could not have originated from Osun State because as at the said date Ede was in Oyo State and that the documents were forged.

He also added that the examination, Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSCE) which the senator claimed to have sat for was not in existence as of 1981 when he claimed to have written the examination.

He cited Section 31 (5) of the Electoral Law which stipulated that any person can approach the court if any candidate presented false affidavit or document to INEC and paragraph 6 which gave the court the power to disqualify anyone who did so.

The court then adjourned the case till Wednesday, 8th August, 2018 for final judgement on the suit.”

What do you people think about the dotted lines? If we connect the lines, what do you think will be the outcome?

Your answer is as good as mine.
