Contingent Reasons Why Ajimobi Was Denied Victory

By - - [ Politics ]

Just yesterday, the Oyo State Tribunal gave victory to Senator Kola Balogun against the former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi concerning the February 23 last election.

Here are some 5 contingent reason why the ex Governor was denied victory;

1. The lead judge addressed that most of the witnesses the petitioners called to testify were just ward coalition agent and not the proper people to tender the results.

2. The testimonies by the ward coalition agent were not substantive enough to be based on.

3. The petitioners based their testimonies on the add reader result without calling the marker to testify.

4.  It was also held that the malfunctioning of the card reader could not amount to or invalidate the voter's register.

5. The petitioners refused to prove all allegations beyond reasonable doubt.

What do you think?

This is why the judiciary is tagged the last hope of common man. The pronouncement of the court is thorough and fair and reflects the wish of the people of the senatorial district. There was no way to overturn the outcome of the election in the first place. He was just relying on the power that be to come to his aid.

You dont just just take law by the head. It deals with evidence. In actually fact, seems like the people of the state where tired of him.

The basic thing is for him to work in hand with the present government. To make the state a better place.

In all areas ajimobi during his administration as the oyo state governor felt so important, forgetting that he might ever need the help of the people who he ruled over like slaves he spoke words and step on sacred toes ..... If the election is held 5 million times he'll never win.

I personally think ajimobi is not competent at all,he is in politics only for his personal gains and someone like that should not get any position in the government if we want Nigeria to be a good place for all

Sen. Abiola Ajimobi is a great gov indeed. Let says the truth because he has soo many projects in the state. But isn't good for human being not to be respectful to elders no matter what position you are, again, not good enough to be outspoken to the people in the state.

Can we all see now the reason what we need to believe in the system. I'm sure many will commend the court in this case for being sincere and not do the same for Atiku-Buhari's case. The rule of law must've respected
