Appeal Court To Give Judgement On Osun State Guber Election On Thursday

Adeleke (1)

The appeal court sitting in Abuja has slated Thursday for judgement in the Osun state governorship election.

In a hearing notice issued on Wednesday, TheCable reports that the court said it will hear the appeal filed by Gboyega Oyetola, governor of the state, against Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), by 9am.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the September 2018 election.

In March, a three-man panel of the election tribunal led by Ibrahim Sirajol, held that Oyetola was not validly returned as the winner of the election and subsequently declared Adeleke winner.

The panel asked INEC to issue a fresh certificate of return to Adeleke and withdraw the one given to Oyetola.

But Oyetola rejected the judgement and headed to the appellate court.
