In a recent development, the Election Petition Tribunal has officially declared Gboyega Oyetola as the winner of the Osun State Election.

In a historic decision, the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo has officially declared former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola as the winner of the state’s governorship election. The tribunal, in a split decision of two to one, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to the incumbent Governor Ademola Adeleke and instead issue it to Oyetola.

According to the majority judgement, which was read by the Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Tertse Kume, Oyetola received the majority of lawful votes with a total of 314,931, while Adeleke received 219,666 votes. This decision marks the end of a legal battle that has lasted for several months, with both sides presenting their cases and evidence to the tribunal.

The tribunal’s decision is a significant one, as it not only confirms Oyetola’s victory in the election but also reaffirms the integrity of the electoral process in Osun State. The ruling is a reminder that the rule of law prevails in Nigeria and that all parties must respect the decision of the court.

The tribunal’s decision was met with mixed reactions from the public, with supporters of Oyetola celebrating the news, while supporters of Adeleke expressed disappointment. However, it is important to note that the decision of the tribunal is final and cannot be appealed.

The newly elected Governor, Oyetola, has expressed his gratitude to the tribunal for the fair and just decision. He also thanked his supporters for their unwavering support and pledged to govern the state with transparency, accountability and fairness. He also said he will work to improve the lives of all Osun citizens, regardless of their political affiliation.

This decision of the Tribunal is a clear indication that the electoral process in Nigeria is becoming more transparent and credible. It is also a reminder that the rule of law remains the foundation of any democracy, and that all parties must accept the outcome of the election and work together for the betterment of the state.

It is worth mentioning that the tribunal’s decision also serves as a reminder for the need for more reforms in Nigeria’s electoral system to ensure that future elections are free, fair, and credible. The role of INEC and other electoral bodies should be strengthened and the electoral process should be more transparent and accountable to the citizens.
