Headed by Justice Adenike Coker, the election petition court today upheld the election of Ogun State House Assembly Speaker Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, representing Ifo Constituency as the legislator.
The three-member tribunal, sitting in Abeokuta, ruled that the proof presented by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) petitioner, Mr Wemimo Owolabi, was inadequate to nullify the election of Oluomo, the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate.
The Speaker reacted by appreciating the Judiciary as the common man’s hope.
He ensured he would be further encouraged by the tribunal judgment to perform at the helms of the state legislature.
Prince Oluomo stressed that “the individuals of Ifo-1 Constituency deserved decent representation at the State Assembly, promising not to break the confidence and love that rested in him.”
However, he called on all the aggrieved parties to put their grievances behind them and to pitch their tents with him in an effort to guarantee good representation and governance.
