Ogun Tribunal Quashes Kashamu’s Election

Kayode Sesan

The National and State Assembly Elections Petition Tribunal sitting in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Friday nullified the election of the Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial district, Prince Buruji Kashamu, over non-compliance with electoral law.

The three-man panel headed by Justice Ebiowei Tobi while delivering judgement, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election in 110 polling units in the Senatorial district within 90 days.

The petition challenging Kashamu’s victory in the March 28 National Assembly elections, was filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Prince Dapo Abiodun.

Kashamu represented the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election.

The Tribunal has ordered a rerun.
