It’s often said that failure is an orphan while success attracts many. This can be said in the case of Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who was recently declared winner of the 2018 Osun State governorship election by the Tribunal Court.
Following his success, many of this political colleagues are now looking into the direction of his legal team that helped him in filling the petitions and argued the case at the tribunal.
According to report, Adekunle Akinlade, the Allied Peoples Movement’s party governorship candidate and Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s anointed candidate in the last Ogun state governorship election has hired the services of Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu, who led Ademola Adeleke’s case at the tribunal, to handle his election petition.
The lawyer, according to report, has began work in earnest. Yesterday, the lawyer urged the governorship election petition tribunal in Ogun state to give an order mandating the Independent National Electoral Commission to grant him access to the documents used for the conduct of the election, so that he can file a petition before the tribunal.
