(BREAKING) Osun Governorship Election: Dancing Senator, Adeleke, PDP Fails In Supreme Court


***Confirms Oyetola As Governor

The appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its governorship candidate in the September 2018 election in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, challenging the election of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has been dismissed.

The appeal was thrown out on Friday (today) by the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

The Supreme Court in a split decision of five to two declared that the proceedings and the majority judgment of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal which had declared the PDP as the winner of the poll were a nullity.

Reading the lead majority judgment, Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour held that the absence of Justice Peter Obiorah who later read the lead judgment of the tribunal during the February 6, 2019 hearing, had rendered the entire proceedings of the said tribunal and its judgment a nullity.

Even, the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, ACJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad, alongside three other members consented to the lead majority judgment.

However, Justice Kumai Akaahs and Justice Paul Galinje affirmed PDP as the winner of the poll.
