Appeal Court Judgment: PDP Raises Alarm Over Delay In Getting Certified True Copies

The Peoples Democratic Party, Ondo state chapter, has said that the delay in getting the certified true copies of the judgment of the appeal court in the matter between Its Governorship Candidate, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede SAN, and Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN,is giving the party serious concern because of time constraints in order to file appeal at the Supreme Court.

PDP In a statement by its publicity secretary, Kennedy Peretei, a copy of which was made available to Newsnow said “In view of the fact that, the Supreme Court has only sixty days from the date of the judgment of the Court of Appeal, to dispose of this matter, any attempt to play games  or to apply delay tactics will amount to nothing but sabotage and a calculated attempt to subvert the course of justice.”

Below is the full statement 

The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, delivered judgement on the Appeal filed by PDP and Eyitayo Jegede, SAN against Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN on Wednesday, 16th June, 2021. The five-man panel of Honourable Justices read their judgements one after the other.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State Chapter is surprised that, our application to the Office of the Registrars, Court of Appeal to get Certified True Copies of the Judgement has been met with some kind of bulk passing between officials of the Court in Ado-Ekiti and Akure. 

In view of the fact that, the Supreme Court has only sixty days from the date of the judgment of the Court of Appeal, to dispose of this matter, any attempt to play games  or to apply delay tactics will amount to nothing but sabotage and a calculated attempt to subvert the course of justice.

Our party hopes that the Registrars of the court will discharge his duties timeously as required by law.
