The Election Petition Tribunal constituted to hear matters arising from the Osun State governorship election has granted the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the poll , Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola , the leave to inspect materials used for the conduct of the poll held on September 22 and 27 , 2018 .
The tribunal , headed by Justice T . A . Igoche , granted the order in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, on Friday following an application brought before it by Oyetola ’ s counsel , Yinka Okedara .
The APC , on whose platform Oyetola contested , also made the same application and the tribunal granted it .
The Justice Igoche – led tribunal also granted the candidate and the party the leave to physically inspect election results and other documents and obtain their certified true copies , as well as inspect the smart card readers used for the poll .
The court granted four out of five reliefs sought in the application by the APC and Oyetola but refused to grant the order that the APC , Oyetola and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ademola Adeleke , should carry out a joint inspection of the election materials .
The tribunal had last week granted Adeleke the leave to inspect the election materials and that the Independent National Electoral Commission should not tamper with the materials .
The tribunal ’ s chairman in her ruling held that granting joint inspection order would contradict the earlier order granted to the PDP on October 11 , 2018 by the same tribunal and such process might affect the speedy filing of the petition , which was the major ground of the PDP ’ s application .
She said Oyetola and the APC would have the opportunity of verifying any document through separate inspection order granted Oyetola and the APC in the presence of other interested parties .
