Dogara hails PDP victory at Osun tribunal


Updated: March 7, 2021

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, has hailed the judgement of Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja which upheld the petition of the PDP Candidate and declared the September 27, 2018 supplementary governorship election held in seven polling units illegal, describing it as a refreshing reminder that the judiciary is still alive and working.

He said  tribunal judgment which held that the supplementary election was a product of an illegal cancellation of  results in seven polling units during the September 22, 2018 main election and that the Returning Officer who cancelled the results had no power to do so has rekindled hope in Nigerians who felt robbed of their mandates in the just concluded general elections.

The speaker warned the Governor of Bauchi State as well as the Resident Electoral Commissioner of the state to take a cue from the judgement and learn  a lesson that the truth will always prevail, no matter how long it takes as the wheels of justice grinds slowly but surely.

While congratulating the  Peoples Democratic Party and its governorship candidate, Ademola Adeleke, he urged PDP candidates who are standing for elections tomorrow, as well as their supporters, to be encouraged by this judgement and come out enmasse to vote for the party
