Prince Dapo Abiodun, the All Progressives Congress, APC Ogun East Senatorial candidate in the March 28 Presidential and National Assembly Election challenged Kashamu’s victory at the tribunal, claiming that Kashamu was not validly elected.
Instead, Abiodun wanted the tribunal to declare him the winner.
At the hearing on 3 August, all the counsels in the matter adopted their final addresses and made final submission to further convince the court on their cases.
Counsel to the petitioner, Yusuf Ali (SAN) argued that result sheets made available to agents at the polling units were different from the Certified True Copies,CTC, brought before the court by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
