The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the Governor of Osun State.
The Apex court in a judgement on Tuesday dismissed the appeal filed by former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the July 16, 2022 election.
Oyetola has approached the apex court to appeal against the judgement of the Appeal Court delivered by a panel led by Justice Muhammed Lawal Shaibu.
The Apex Court held that regulations by the Independent National Electoral Commission does not provide for transportation of accredited voters to the database except snapped pictures of results for form Ec8A to the IREV. Thereby, it can not be relied upon.
On Qualification of Governor Adeleke, the Supreme Court insisted that the matter was non-existent since there is an appeal court judgement since 2019 in favour of Adeleke. The tribunal was utterly wrong and misapplied the law.
