BREAKING: SUPREME COURT DISMISSES PDP’S APPEAL IN OSUN GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION

By Godson Ikiebey- 

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last governorship election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The Court, in a majority decision of five-to-two, read by Justice Olabode Rodes-Vivour, held that the failure of a member of the election tribunal, Justice Peter Obiora to sit on February 6, 2019 rendered the entire proceedings and the judgment given by the tribunal a nullity.

Therefore it went with the majority judgment of the Court of Appeal, which upheld the victory of Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the Governor of Osun State.
