A Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja will on June 29, 2022 hear suit instituted by Alh. Moshood Adeoti, against Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
OSUN DEFENDER gathered Adeoti is challenging Oyetola’s eligibility to participate in the governorship primary election on the ground that he did not resign his membership of the Caretaker and Extra Ordinary Convention Planning Committee.
It would be recalled that Adeoti, an aspirant, came second in the highly compromised governorship primary election held on February 19, this year.
When the case came up today at the court, all the applications by counsels of both Adeoti and Oyetola were adopted, after which the presiding judge, Justice Ekwo, called for adjournment from the counsels.
Oyetola’s counsel, Mr Saka Layonu, SAN, proposed a two-week adjournment date.
But counsel to the plaintiff, Mahmud Adesina, SAN,opposed Layonu on the ground that the case is a pre-election matter which must be decided before July 16 governorship election in the state.
Consequently, Justice Ekwo rejected the earlier two-week adjournment date and asked for a week time frame.
Both Layonu and Mahmud Adesina agreed on June 29 and the judge adjourned the case till same date for hearing.
