The Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo has sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke as the duly elected governor of the state.
The tribunal in a split document of two to one declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) should withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Adeleke and issue the same to former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
The majority judgement which was read out by the Chairman, Justice Tertse Kume said Oyetola scored the majority lawful votes of 314,931 against Adeleke’s 219,666.
In August 2022, Oyetola and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) petitioned the tribunal to challenge the election victory of Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Among several issues, Oyetola is contending that there was overvoting in 749 polling units across 10 LGAs of the state.
The minority judgement is ongoing. Details shortly…
