Governor of the State of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola on Tuesday closed his defence before the Osun governorship election petition tribunal, sitting at FCT High Court, Apo, Abuja.
The counsel for the governor, John Baiyeshea (SAN), told the three-man tribunal that the second respondent was closing his case.
Baiyeshea said that having reviewed the case, the second respondent found it unnecessary to call further witnesses to prove his case.
“We do not need any more witness to prove our case,’’ he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the governor only called 11 witnesses, including Mr Adelodun Rasaki, the state collation agent for the All Progressives Congress in the election.
However, the counsel to the All Progressives Congress, Mr Yomi Alihu, has told the tribunal that he would open his case on Wednesday.
The tribunal adjourned its sitting till Wednesday, February 6 for APC to open its defence.
