Oyetola has won his case against Senator Adeleke to remain Osun State governor
The Court of Appeal has affirmed Gboyega Oyetola as the authentic winner of the 2018 Osun State governorship election.
The court delivered judgements in three appeals and a cross-appeal filed before it after an election tribunal ruled in March 2019 that Ademola Adeleke of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won the election and not Oyetola who was sworn in last year.
Oyetola, a candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) , was declared the winner of the election after winning a supplementary election in September 2018.
Adeleke’s initial victory was declared inconclusive because the victory margin of 353 votes over Oyetola was less than the 3498 votes cancelled in seven polling units, a situation that required a supplementary election.
After the supplementary election, the poll closed with Oyetola winning a total 255,505 votes, 482 more votes than Adeleke’s 255,023.
