Attempt To Bribe Us And Go to Jail, Ogun Election Tribunal Warns Politicians and Lawyers


The National and State Houses of Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abeokuta, Ogun State, yesterday held its sitting with a warning to both petitioners and lawyers not to attempt inducing them in any way.

Also, the tribunal has granted the Ogun East Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the March 28 National Assembly elections, Prince Dapo Abiodun leave to inspect INEC’s electoral materials used during the conduct of the polls in the area.

The tribunal promised to resist any move to compromise its members throughout the duration of its sittings.

It appealed to the litigants, politicians and their agents to do their jobs and refrain from attempting to influence them “by whatever means whatsoever.”

The chairman of the three-man tribunal, Justice Ebiowei Tobi, warned that it would have zero-tolerance for corruption.

Justice Tobi in his inaugural speech on behalf of the two other members, Justice Adekunle Lawal and Hon. Quadi Adamu Usman, made available in court to petitioners and their lawyers, including the state attorney general and commissioner for justice, Abimbola Akeredolu, stressed that they were not ready to “mortgage” their conscience.
