The Supreme Court on Tuesday affirmed the Governor of Osun State and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the July 16, 2022, gubernatorial election, Ademola Adeleke as the state Governor.
This is coming after the ex-governor of the state and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gboyega Oyetola approached the apex court following an earlier ruling of the Court of Appeal.
Recall that the appellant court on the 25th of March, affirmed Adeleke’s victory in the 16th July 202 governorship election.
The Appeal Court had, in its judgement, set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which ruled in favour of Oyetola and sacked Adeleke.
Oyetola and APC which were pleased with the Court of Appeals ruling approached the Supreme Court with claims of overvoting in the governorship election in the state.
