Tribunal Sacks Adeleke, Declares Oyetola Osun Governor

The Election Petitions Tribunal in Osun State on Friday annulled the result of the July 16, 2022 Osun governorship poll.

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress’ Adegboyega Oyetola has challenged the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Ademola Adeleke in the election.

Justice Tetsea Kume, while delivering a majority decision, declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission did not comply substantially with the constitution and the provisions of the Electoral Act.

He subsequently deducted the over-voting observed from the votes scored by the candidates and declared that Oyetola won the election, having polled 314, 921, while Adeleke’s score came down to 290, 266.

He directed INEC to withdraw Adeleke’s certificate of return and issue another one to Oyetola who won a majority of the lawful votes.
