Ekiti: Tribunal Admits 11 LG, 109 Wards Electoral Materials As Exhibits
The Ekiti State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal on Friday in Abuja admitted as exhibits, electoral materials used in 11 Local Government Areas and 109 Wards for the July 14, governorship elections.
Ekiti State had 177 wards with 2,197 polling units in 16 Local Government Areas while electoral materials from 11 of Local Government Areas, with 109 wards had been admitted as exhibits.
The materials were tendered by Prof. Olusola Kolapo, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate at the elections, through his counsel, Mr Yusuf Ali (SAN), as part of evidence to prosecute his case.
Electoral materials from Efon (10 wards), Ekiti East (12 wards), Ekiti West (11 wards), Ekiti South(11 wards), Emure (10 wards), and Gbonyin (10 wards), had been admitted as exhibit so far.
Electoral materials from Ido Osi (11wards), Ijero (12 wards), Ikole (12 wards) and Ilejemeje (10 wards) had also been admitted as exhibit.
The defence team, however, objected to the admissibility of the documents, stating that they were not pleaded and that some of the wards mentioned were not in contention.
