Adeleke Vs Otetola OnoBello

The Supreme Court has dismissed the imploration by the Peoples Democratic Party and its governorship candidate for Osun state in the September gubernatorial election, Ademola Adeleke, contesting against Adegboyega Oyetola as the winner of the poll.

The apex court, in a majority decision of five-to-two, read by Justice Olabode Rodes-Vivour, held that the failure of a member of the election tribunal, Justice Peter Obiora to sit on February 6, 2019 rendered the entire proceedings and the judgment given by the tribunal a nullity.

The court upheld the majority judgment of the Court of Appeal, affirming the victory Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the Governor of Osun State.
