Osun 2018 Election: Abuja High Court Orders WAEC To Produce Adeleke’s Result Within 5 Days
An Abuja federal high court has given an order directing the West African Examination Council (WAEC), through its Director General or any other designated officer of the council to depose to an affidavit on Senator Ademola Adeleke’s result.
The court asked WAEC to either confirm or deny that Adeleke who is the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 22 gubernatorial election in Osun state, with candidate number 19645/149, sat for the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) conducted by the council at Ede Muslim High School , Osun state in May/June 1981, within five days of being served the order.
NAIJAPARY gathered the court also gave an order compelling WAEC to produce the ledger containing the results of all candidates that sat for the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination conducted by the council at Ede Muslim High School, Osun state in May/June 1981, within five days of being served the order.
The court order was contained in a ruling on an application filed by Wahab Adekunle Raheem and Adam Omosalewa Habeeb against Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke and two others.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission , were also joined as defendants in the court case.
The request for an interim injunction restraining INEC from recognizing Senator Adeleke as PDP’s candidate for the September 22 election in Osun state pending the hearing of the motion or retraining him from parading himself as the PDP candidate in the forthcoming election, was however not granted by the court.
Senator Adeleke had been in the eye of the storm over the status of his O’level result, with certain individuals contesting he doesn’t have the educational requirement to contest for the Osun governorship position as enshrined in Nigeria’s constitution.
