Adeleke floors Oyetola at Supreme Court

Published

Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been affirmed by the Supreme Court of Nigeria, as the winner of the July 16 governorship election in Osun State.

ROYAL NEWS reports that a five-man panel, in a judgment a moment ago, dismissed the appeal by former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for lacking in merit.

The apex court affirmed the March 25 judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which earlier upheld Adeleke’s victory.

The Appeal Court had, in its judgement, set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which held in favour of Oyetola and sacked Adeleke.
