Supreme Court rules on Osun Gov dispute Tuesday
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on May 9, 2023
The Supreme Court has scheduled judgment for 2pm on Tuesday in the appeal filed by former Osun Governor, Gboyega Oyetola against the election of Ademola Adeleke.
Oyetola is, by his appeal, seeking the reversal of the March 25 judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which affirmed Adeleke’s victory in the last governorship election in Osun State.
The Appeal Court had, in its judgement, set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which held in favour of Oyetola and sacked Adeleke.
The Nation newspaper reports that a five-member panel of the Supreme Court announced the time and date for judgment after taking arguments from lawyers to parties on Monday.
