It was all a surprise as things took a different turn with the Edo State Election Petitions Tribunal on Thursday throwing out one of the petitions filed  for abuse of court process.

It said the Young Democratic Party and its governorship candidate, Nurudeen Inwanfero, YDP failed to comply with paragraph 29 of the Electoral Act by filling the necessary application before the tribunal seeking to discontinue with the first petition it filed.

Candidate of the YDP, Nurudeen Inwanfero, had in his petition asked the tribunal to cancel the entire September 28election because the party’s logo was not included in the ballot papers used for the election.

The petitioners filed petitions number one and three and it filed notice of discontinue for petition number one but the tribunal held that filing of petition number three was abuse of court process.

Ruling on the application filed by Governor Godwin Obaseki through his lead Counsel, Lateef Fagbemi, the three-man panel earlier granted leave of the respondent to argue the application outside the pre-hearing session.

Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Ahmed Badamasi, who read the ruling said it was clear that there are two same petitions from the petitioners before the tribunal. 




Justice Badamasi held that there was nothing to show that the notice of discontinuous was filed by the petitioners and described it as vague and incompetence.

Badamasi therefore struck out petition number three and all pending applications against the petition.

Attempts by the petitioners’ Counsel, Ugo Nwofor, to request for adjournment to enable him put his ‘House in order’ rejected by the respondents’ Counsels.

Nwofor stated that it was in the interest of justice for the tribunal to grant the adjournment to allow him time put things together in respect of petition number one.

Olanipekun urged the tribunal to remove the life support on the petition as there was no application for extension of time before the tribunal.

Justice Badamasi adjourned sitting to December 13 for ruling on whether petition number one still has merit.
