Ogun Election Petition Tribunal To Rule On Vote Buying Allegation On June 19

The Ogun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, sitting in Abeokuta, says it will decide whether to hear the petitions of vote buying brought before it by both the All Progressives Congress, (APC), and the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).

The APC and its candidate Governor Dapo Abiodun, had accused the PDP, and its candidate, Mr. Ladi Adebutu, of vote buying in one of its motions. 

The PDP in return also accused the APC of the same.

A police investigation replying to an APC petition had earlier indicted Mr Adebutu of alleged vote buying with the sum of N2 billion Naira through an ATM card preloaded with N10,000 each.

Also, acting upon a petition, instituted by the PDP, the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, has directed the Police Commissioner in Ogun State to investigate Governor Abiodun over allegations that he loaded N5 billion on bank-linked vouchers to buy votes during the same election.

The Chairman of the three-member Tribunal, Justice Kunaza Hamidu adjourned to 19th June, for ruling on the motion.
