BREAKING NEWS: Tribunal Sacks Osun Governor, Declares PDP’s Adeleke Winner

ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Osun State governorship election Petitions tribunal sitting in Abuja has upturned the victory of the incumbent Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

The three-man tribunal  Friday in a lead judgement by Justice Peter Obiora declared that Senator Ademola Adeleke of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) won the September 2018 governorship election.

The tribunal held that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Governor Oyetola was not validly returned.

Recall that the supplementary governorship election held in seven polling units. The Tribunal ruled that the re-run was illegal.

The panel added that the supplementary poll was a product of an illegal cancellation of the results in the seven polling units during the September 22, 2018 main election.

It ruled that the Returning Officer who cancelled the results had no power to do so.

The tribunal further held that INEC should withdraw the certificate of returns issued to APC’s Adegboyega  Oyetola and a new certificate of returns should be issued to the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the Osun governorship election.
