Makinde’s Lawyers Cry Out Over Judges Refusal To Release Copy Of Judgment

Forty Eight-hours after the Appeal Court Panel sitting on Oyo State Governorship Election Petition gave its judgment, the copy of the judgment has not been made available to lawyers of the Governor of Oyo State, Mr. Seyi Makinde, investigations have revealed.
Informed sources close to the judiciary in Ibadan told our Correspondent that the Lead Counsel to Governor Seyi Makinde on the election petition matter, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, has been left frustrated on the matter.
It was gathered that though Jegede instituted the process to secure the copy of the judgment immediately after the ruling, the Appeal Court has not made it available to the Counsel.
It was gathered that the staff of the Court of Appeal have told the lawyers that the Judges were trying to correct some errors in the judgment to prevent the errors from being made public.
“As of now, the copy of the judgment has not been made available and this could be dangerous. I can authoritatively inform you that Makinde’s lawyer initiated the process to get the judgment but he was frustrated. This is another reason for interested parties not to go to sleep, as something may be amiss,” the source said.
The source further said that the delay in releasing the court ruling may be dangerous because the Supreme Court has 60 days to determine the matter from the date of the ruling of the Court of Appeal.
