Supreme Court: Adeleke Has Fulfilled All Constitutional Requirements To Be Declared Winner – Abayomi Ojosegun
(1) The Osun election petition matter is purely a constitutional matter.
(2) And by that it means that the Supreme Court Judges will look at the constitutional provisions surrounding that September 22nd, 2018 and ponder over it.
(3) They will critically check out where the constitution was fulfilled and where it was violated.
(4) By refusing to declare the winner who fulfilled all requirements as provide for by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the election umpire, INEC, has contravened the constitution and the inconclusive declaration ran ultra vires and therefore presumed to have departed from the path of truth, righteousness, laid down rules and regulations that the extant laws of the land allows by which the supplementary election of September 27 became an exercise in futility and should be regarded as null and void and of no effect.
(5) This my submission and analyses is purely based on the constitutional minimum requirements needed to declare a winner in such an election, I didn’t write the constitution, we grew up as citizens to know what the laws allow us to do and in PDP we abide by it and the Supreme Court is the father of all of us in Nigeria, we are like quarrelling children that went to their parents to settle differences, we all have hope of getting fair judgment here.
UBI JUS IBI REMEDIUM.
WHERE THERE IS WRONG (CHEATING) THE LAW PROVIDES SOLUTION.
(a) Senator Ademola Adeleke scored more than 25% of the total votes cast in more than
two thirds of the entire state and also had simple majority to earn him unquestioned victory at the first ballot as it happened in some states and APC was declared winner without any rerun of the election. That’s what the constitution allowed.
(b) That Edo state governorship election is a good example of this fulfillment of the constitutional provision occurred where the vote difference was less than the total number of cancelled votes and no supplementary or rerun election was allowed.
(c) That in 2010 Osun election tribunal, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was declared the winner of the governorship election of April 2007, after the tribunal cancelled results of entire 10 local government areas and Ogbeni Aregbesola/ACN was declared instant winner with simple majority and 25% spread in the remaining 20 local government areas that formed the two third, no supplementary or rerun election. That was a very good precedence that the Supreme Court will also critically looked at in passing its judgment and not anybody’s influence or body language.
With all these existing historical similarities especially in the same state, the Supreme Court is already armed with what it requires to uphold the constitution of our country on Osun election petition before it.
Thank God for the erudite personalities that occupy the seats of decisions at our Apex Court headed by a God-fearing Chief Judge Tanko Muhammed who openly declared that all the judges “are answerable to God only and not to any man.”
