He said other federal constituencies include Akure South/Akure North, Akoko South east/Akoko South west and Akoko North east/Akoko North west.

Adam said the tribunal was expecting petitions on the outcome of the House of Assembly election.

He said that aggrieved candidates have 21 days from the announcement of election results to file a petition before the tribunal.
