Supreme court fixes July 5 for judgement on Osun guber poll

Supreme court fixes July 5 for judgement on Osun guber poll

The supreme court has fixed July 5 for its judgement on the governorship election of Osun state.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of the governorship election held in September.

But Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenged this at the tribunal and was declared winner in March.

But Oyetola appealed the tribunal’s ruling in May and the appeal court nullified the judgment of the election tribunal, ruling in favour of the governor.

Adeleke had filed four appeals at the apex court to challenge the judgement of the appellate court.

Ruling on the case on Monday, a seven-man panel of the court led by Ibrahim Muhammad, acting chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), adjourned three of the appeals.

The court took a recess and resumed to hear the last of the four appeals.

Adeleke is seeking the following reliefs: the apex court should set aside the judgement the appeal court delivered in favour of Oyetola and dismiss Oyetola’s appeal against the decision of the tribunal.

But Wole Olanipekun, counsel to Oyetola and the APC, prayed the court to dismiss the appeal of Adeleke.
