Supreme Court to rule on Osun Governorship dispute

Supreme Court has scheduled judgment for 2 ‘Clock this afternoon in the appeal filed by former Osun Governor, Gboyega Oyetola against the election of Ademola Adeleke.

Oyetola is, by his appeal, seeking the reversal of the March twenty-five judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which affirmed Adeleke’s victory in the last governorship election in Osun State.

Appeal Court had, in its judgement, set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which held in favour of Oyetola and sacked Adeleke.

A five-member panel of the Supreme Court announced the time and date for judgment after taking arguments from lawyers to parties yesterday.
