Supreme Court to decide authentic Osun State governor today


The supreme court is currently hearing an appeal filed the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke, challenging the victory of governor Gboyega Oyetola in the 2018 Osun governorship election.

Heading the court is acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Muhammad.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of the governorship election held in September.

But Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenged this at the tribunal and was declared winner in March.

But Oyetola appealed the tribunal’s ruling in May and the appeal court in Abuja nullified the judgment of the election tribunal, ruling in favour of the governor.

Following the appeal courts ruling, Adeleke then approached the Supreme court challenging the ruling of the appellate court.
