EKITI 2018: Not Yet Uhuru As Tribunal Orders PDP/Eleka To Serve APC/Fayemi Petition Through Substituted Means
THE Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ado Ekiti, today, granted the PDP and its candidate in the Ekiti State governorship election, Prof Kolapo Olusola, order to serve the petition on the APC and Dr Kayode Fayemi through substituted means.
All efforts by bailiff to serve Fayemi and his party had been futile as the party secretariat was locked to apparently evade service.
Sensing that the defendants were deliberately evading service, the PDP filed a Motion ex-parte, seeking an order of court for the petition to be served through substituted means.
The court today, ordered that the petition be pasted at High Court premises, Ado Ekiti and delivered at the National Headquarters of APC in Abuja by courier.
