APM rejects reconstituted Ogun Tribunal, indicts Osinbajo, Tinubu

The National Chairman of the Allied Peoples’ Movement, APM, Yusuf Dantalle, on Monday, rejected the reconstitution of Ogun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

He accused the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for allegedly engineering the change of the panel.

The Justice Chinwe Onyeabo – led panel had been reportedly replaced with Justice Josphine Coker – led team, following the reshufflement of the tribunal panels across the country by the Appeal Court President, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa.

Addressing newsmen at the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta on Monday, Dantalle kicked against disbandment of the Onyeabo Panel, describing it as premeditated and unacceptable.

Dantalle, who was flanked by the State Chairman of APM, Kehinde Oyatokun, and other party leaders, alleged that Justice Coker had served as a Judge under Tinubu’s administration at a time when Osinbajo was the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General in Lagos State.

The National Chairman, while reading a petition addressed to the Appeal Court President, submitted that the reconstitution was an “obvious design to engender injustice” against APM Governorship Candidate, Adekunle Akinlade, who is challenging the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Dapo Abiodun at the Tribunal.
