The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja has set aside the tribunal judgment that removed the Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke as it upheld the governorship.
The tribunal led by Justice Tertse Kume, in a split judgement of 2 to 1, sacked Adeleke based on irregularities in 744 polling units across ten local government areas of the state.
However, delivering their judgment today, the justices unanimously uphel the governorship of Adeleke.
The Court on Friday stated that the All Progressives Congress and Oyetola failed to prove its over voting case against Adeleke.Recall that the former governor of the state and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had challenged Ademola Adeleke’s victory in the July 16 governorship election, before the election petition tribunal in Osun state.
In a ruling on Friday, the Appeal Court affirmed Adeleke as the authentic governor of Osun State.
