Osun Election: Adeleke’s PDP Proceed To Supreme Court

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Ademola Adeleke, has reacted to the judgement of appeal court which nullified the decision of tribunal.

Before now, the election tribunal pronounced Mr Adeleke as the winner of Osun 2018 governorship election.

However on Thursday, the appellate court in Abuja nullified the victory of Mr Adeleke and upheld Mr Oyetola victory.

Nathaniel Oke, who is the counsel to the PDP and Mr Adeleke in the appeal, said they would proceed to the supreme court.

“We have a majority decision concerning this appeal before them, which is ratio four to one. We have a minority decision as we had it before the tribunal but in this appeal, the majority decision went against us.”

“I am telling the whole world that we are not satisfied with the judgment that has been delivered.”

“I will like to appeal to the Supreme Court for the final determination on this issue of Osun Governorship election that was held in 2018,” Mr Oke said.

The five-member panel of the Appeal Court, led by Jummai Sankey, nullified the decision of the tribunal which sacked Mr Oyetola as governor and set aside the entire proceedings of the tribunal.
