BREAKING: Tribunal declares Adeleke Winner of Osun Election, Davido Reacts
Senator Ademola Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party has been declared winner of the 2018 Governorship Elections held in Osun State.
This declaration was made by the Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja. The tribunal also declared as illegal, the September 27, 2018 supplementary governorship election held in seven polling units.
The tribunal held that the supplementary election was a product of an illegal cancellation of the results in the seven polling units during the September 22, 2018 Main election. It ruled that the Returning Officer who cancelled the results had no power to do so.
The Peoples Democratic Party and its governorship candidate, Ademola Adeleke, in the election had filed the petition urging the tribunal to declare that Adeleke polled the highest lawful votes and be declared the winner.
The chairman of the Tribunal held that the certificate of return issued to Adegboyega Oyetola is hereby withdrawn.
