The Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in Ogun state has said it will appeal the judgement of the Ogun state Governorship Election Petition Tribunal presided over by Justice Yusuf Halilu’s panel alleging that the judgement was a miscarriage.
The party made their decision to appeal the judgement known around 11:15am on Thursday at a Press conference held at the party’s secretariats in Abeokuta, the state capital.
The press statement which was read by the acting Publicity Secretary of the party, Olumide Balogun for about 29 minutes, indicted Justice Halilu rendering his claim of having a first time knowledge of the case at the state tribunal as false.
The APM claimed that Justice Halilu has earlier ruled in Favour of the second respondent and Governor of the state, Dapo Abiodun in a related matter filed against him at the federal high court in Abuja.
The party also added that, Abiodun has once written to the registrar of the High court No 26 at the federal capital territory, a court where Justice Halilu is the judge.
Part of the statement reads, “the decision to appeal the judgment was arrives yesterday evening after a number of questionable judicial proceedings was brought to the knowledge of our party leaders and stakeholders.
“We have a duty to appeal the judgment to protect the integrity of our judicial system and restore the mandate freely given by the good people of Pain state to our party.
“Our notice of Appeal will be filled at the appropriate time in accordance with the law”.
“As a party, our position have always been that as long as the process is just, we will accept the conclusion”.
