  • The Osun State Governorship Tribunal’s decision was overturned by the Court of Appeal in Abuja, which upheld Senator Ademola Adeleke’s election as governor of Osun State.
  • The tribunal had already taken Adeleke out of office, saying that he did not get the most legal votes.
  • However, the Appeal Court quashed the tribunal’s judgment and revoked its order to withdraw the certificate of return from Adeleke and issue it to his rival, Gboyega Oyetola.

Abuja, Nigeria (MandyNews) – In a significant development, the Court of Appeal in Abuja has overturned the Osun State Governorship Tribunal’s decision and upheld the election of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the governor of Osun State.

This is a big win for Adeleke and his supporters, who have been saying for a long time that he should have been elected.

After the July 16 governorship elections in the state, Adeleke was fired from his job because, according to the Election Petition Tribunal, the senator did not get the majority of legal votes.

This decision led to a heated legal battle, with Adeleke and his supporters saying that the tribunal was wrong in its decision.

Now, the Court of Appeal has overturned the tribunal’s decision and confirmed Adeleke as the rightful governor of Osun State. This was decided by a three-person panel led by Justice Mohammed Shuaibu.

The panel said that Adeleke’s opponent, Gboyega Oyetola, and the All Progressives Congress (APC) were the only ones who had proof that there was overvoting, so the tribunal was wrong to say that there was.

The appeals court panel also got rid of the tribunal’s order that Adeleke’s certificate of return be taken away and given to Oyetola. This was a big blow to Oyetola’s claim to be governor of the state.

By doing this, the panel upheld Oyetola’s complaint about the BVAS (Biometric Voter Accreditation System), which had been a major source of disagreement during the legal proceedings.

This decision by the Court of Appeal is a big deal for Osun State politics because it confirms Adeleke’s position as governor and puts an end to the legal battles that have been going on since the election.

But it’s still not clear if this decision will be appealed to a higher court, which could make the dispute last longer.

As the situation develops, MandyNews.com will continue to provide updates on the ramifications of this ruling and any further legal action that may ensue.

For now, supporters of Adeleke are celebrating this major victory, while opponents are left to regroup and consider their next steps.
