The Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has fixed Friday January 27th, 2023 to deliver judgement in the suit filed by former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola challenging the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke.
DAILY GIST recalls that Oyetola and APC had on Aug. 5 submitted a petition before the tribunal in Osogbo having been defeated in the July16, 2022 gubernatorial election.
Oyetola and APC are challenging the election results from 749 polling units across 10 local government areas of the state for various alleged electoral malpractice, especially over-voting.
The Secretary to the tribunal, David Mike who confirmed the development made this known in a short notice sent to parties in the state, a copy of which was obtained by DAILY GIST on Tuesday.
According to Nigeria’s electoral laws, the verdict of the tribunal may be challenged up to the Supreme Court for final judgment.
