Court stops Oyo NULGE election

The National Industrial Court has issued an interim injunction restraining the conduct of the election and congress of Oyo State chapter of the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE).

The Caretaker Committee had fixed September 22 for its congress and election of executives.

But, Justice N. C. S. Ogbuanya of the Lagos Judicial Division of the National Industrial Court last Friday issued the restraining order against the conduct of the election and the congress, pending the hearing and determination of the “Motion of Notice” dated September 15.

The restraining order was issued based on a case filed by Comrade Hakeem Ojo Oyewo over his “unlawful and unexplained exclusion” as a candidate for the office of the state president in the election.

The court said the order remains valid pending the hearing and determination of the case.

The defendants include Rufus Babalola Adeyemi, Lamidi Yunusa, Wasiu Olanipekun and Tosin Ogundiran.

Others are David Ayelegbe, Morufu Olapade, Basirat Abioye, NULGE Oyo State chapter and NULGE national headquarters office, Abuja.
