Gboyega Oyetola, the outgoing governor of Osun state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have asked the Osun state election petition tribunal to adjourn the matter.

The request is to allow Oyetola and the APC to serve the state’s resident electoral commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to appear before the panel.

However, the request met stiff opposition from the counsel to the respondents, who argued that the APC and Oyetola are not well prepared for the tribunal.
