Osun Governorship Tussle: Appeal Court Upturns Tribunal’s Verdict, Affirms Oyetola’s Victory

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja today nullifies the judgment of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that declared the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, as the winner of the September 2018 governorship election in the state.

In a split judgment of four-to-one, the five-man panel led by Justice Jummai Sankey upheld the appeal filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola challenging the verdict of the tribunal.

Judicial correspondent Joseph Kadiri completes the story.
