Fear Grips Gov Makinde’s Camp As Copy Of Appeal Court Judgment Is Yet To Be Released

Seyi Makinde

The camp of Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, is becoming uncomfortable as copy of the Appeal Court on the Oyo State Governorship Election Petition is yet to be released to the governor’s lawyers.
The Lead Counsel to Governor Seyi Makinde on the election petition matter, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, is believed to have been left frustrated on the matter even though he had instituted the process to secure the copy of the judgment immediately after the ruling.
The staff of the Court of Appeal were said to have told the lawyers that the Judges were trying to correct some errors in the judgment to prevent the errors from being made public.
“As of now, the copy of the judgment has not been made available and this could be dangerous. I can authoritatively inform you that Makinde’s lawyer initiated the process to get the judgment but he was frustrated. This is another reason for interested parties not to go to sleep, as something may be amiss.”
Lawyers to the governor fear that the delay in releasing the court ruling may be dangerous because the Supreme Court has 60 days to determine the matter from the date of the ruling of the Court of Appeal.
