Supreme Court Delivers Judgement On Osun Gov Election Tuesday
The Supreme Court will on Tuesday give its verdict on the appeal brought before it by the immediate past governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, and his party, the All Progressives Congress.
The court is expected to seat by 2 pm tomorrow (Tuesday).
Oyetola and the APC had challenged the judgement of the Court of Appeal in Abuja, which affirmed Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party as the elected governor of Osun State.
In 2022, the Independent National Electoral Commission announced Adeleke as the winner of the election.
The Supreme Court on Monday scheduled the date and time to lay to rest the legal tussle over the governorship seat of Osun State after parties in the appeal adopted their written address and oral submissions in the matter.
Both Oyeleke and the APC pray that the apex court set aside the verdict of the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal.
The judgement also voided the judgement of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal, which returned Oyetola as the winner of the November July 16, 2022 governorship election.
