Olajide Adediran Jandor

Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 18 election Olajide Adediran aka Jandor has requested the transfer of his appeal against the ruling of the election petition tribunal to Abuja.

In a letter dated October 23 and addressed to the president of the Court of Appeal Justice Monica Dongbam-Mensem, Jandor said the transfer would ensure fairness and objectivity devoid of potential meddling.

The notice was received on the same day at the office of the president of the appellate court.

Justice Dongban-Mensem, as part of efforts to eradicate political interference in the courts, had transferred all election petition cases pending before the court in the 36 states to Abuja and Lagos.

Jandor, on October 13, filed a 34 grounds notice of appeal challenging the September 25 judgment of the tribunal.

In the grounds of appeal, the PDP candidate and his party also reiterated the reliefs in their petitions, asking for the disqualification of the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (Babajide Sanwo-Olu) and Labour Party (Gbadebo Rhodes-Viviour).

Jandor also wants the Court of Appeal to hold that all the votes recorded for both candidates in the said election were wasted votes owing to their non-qualification to participate in the election.
