Chairman of Offa local government area of Kwara State, Hon. Saheed Popoola, has challenged the nullification of the verdict by the local government election petition tribunal at the Appeal Court.
The tribunal had last month nullified result of the local government by-election conducted in January last year in Offa and ordered for a fresh election in the council within 120days.
In his appeal, Popoola through his counsel, H.O Buhari, prayed the appellate court to set aside the decision of the lower tribunal. Buhari also urged the court to “dismiss the petition of the petitioners or in the alternative, order a retrial of the petition before another local government election tribunal.”
