Osun gov dispute: Appeal Court delivers judgment Thursday

Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State

The Court of Appeal in Abuja will on Thursday deliver judgments in three appeals and a cross-appeal filed against the majority judgment given in March 22, 2019 by the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal.

The court made this known in the hearing notices it sent to parties, a copy of which The Nation sighted in Abuja on Wednesday.

The tribunal had, in the majority judgment, given by two of its three members, upheld the petition  by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the governorship election held in the state on September 22 and 27, 2018 Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The tribunal’s majority judgment reversed the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Adegboyega Oyetola and declared the PDP and Adeleke winners.
