Court Of Appeal Declares Ademola Adeleke Winner Of Osun State Governorship Election

The appeal court set aside the judgement on Friday.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has set aside the judgement of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal that annulled the victory of Governor Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the July 16, 2022, Osun State governorship election.

The appeal court set aside the judgement on Friday.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced Adeleke as the winner of the poll.
Adeleke, according to INEC, polled 403,371 votes to defeat then-incumbent Governor Oyetola of the APC, who got 375,027 votes.
But Oyetola and the APC rejected the result of the poll and headed for the tribunal.
In its January 27, 2023 majority verdict, the Justice Tertse Kume-led tribunal annulled Adeleke’s victory and declared Oyetola the winner of the poll.
However, a minority judgment by Justice B. Ogbuli affirmed Adeleke as the winner of the poll.
Displeased, Adeleke and the PDP headed for the Court of Appeal.
The Court of Appeal heard the appeal on March 13 and reserved its judgment.
But the court of Appeal on Friday set aside the tribunal judgement.
This is a developing story. More details shortly.
Ihedioha clocked 58 years of age on Friday, March 24th.
