Tribunal sacks Osun Governor, declares Adeleke winner.

Says supplementary election illegal

Voids results in 17 polling units

The Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal has voided the election of Adegboyega Oyetola as governor of Osun State.

In a two-to-one split decision by a three-man panel, the tribunal declared Senator Ademola Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as winner of the election

Justice Peter Obiora, who read the lead judgement, voided the supplementary election held on September 27, 2018 on the ground that the state returning officer has no power to have cancelled election in seven polling units in four Local Government and order a rerun.

The tribunal, in the majority judgment, also cancelled results from 17 polling units on grounds of substantial non-compliance with Electoral Act.
