Tribunal Strikes out Petition against Sen. Obanikoro Son’s Victory

183
Honorable Babajide Obanikoro

An Ikeja Election Petitions Tribunal, today, struck out an application challenging the victory of Hon Ibrahim Babajide Obanikoro (IBO), representing Eti-Osa Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.

Recall that the election was first held on Saturday, 23rd February 2019 but entered into a rerun which held on Saturday 9th March, 2019.

Mr Tony Akala Bakare, a candidate of the PDP who ran against Obanikoro in the election had filed a motion seeking the reversal of Obanikoro’s victory.

However, the three-man panel who presided over the petition unanimously struck out the application for lacking merit.
