The Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Akure is set to rule on the October 20, Ondo State governorship poll today.

The verdict o the petition filed by Mr Eyitayo Jedege of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against the winner of the election, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressive Congress, APC, was initially billed to take place on Wednesday 21, 2021 but was rescheduled for today.

Reports say the tribunal will utilise the electronic method to deliver the judgement due to the ongoing strike action by members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, who are demanding financial autonomy for the judicial arm of government, Punch reports.

The secretary of the tribunal in a notice to the concerned parties in the case on Monday evening says today’s tribunal judgement would be passed through the zoom and not in a regular court.

The notice read, “Take notice that judgment in petition NO: EPT/AK/GOV/1/2020 between Eyitayo Olayinka Jegede, SAN and INEC & 3ORS which was earlier fixed for 21st April 2021 has been re-scheduled to tomorrow being 20th April 2021 by 10am prompt through zoom. You can join us through the below Details. Id No: 7895674390. PASSWORD: blessing. Please dress formally. Thanks.”
