The Supreme Court on Tuesday has declared Ademola Adeleke as the winner of gubernatorial election in Osun state.
Delivering judgment on Tuesday, a five-member panel of the apex court held that the court of appeal correctly reinstated Adeleke as governor.
Oyetola of the All Progressive Congress (APC) had sought the reversal of the March 25 judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which affirmed Adeleke’s victory in the July 2022 governorship election.
The Court had set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which held in favour of Oyetola and removed Adeleke.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Adeleke the winner of last year’s Osun election after polling 403,371 votes.
Oyetola finished second with 375,027 and Action Democratic Party (ADP) candidate Kehinde Atanda was third.
