Osun Governorship: Supreme Court reserves judgment in Oyetola vs Adeleke’s suit
May 8, 2023
The Supreme Court in Abuja, on Monday, reserved judgment in an appeal filed by Mr Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressive Congress, (APC) against a judgment of the court of appeal which validated the election of governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State.
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
After hearing all the parties, the Supreme Court said judgment would be delivered tomorrow (Tuesday) by 2pm.
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.
A five-member panel of the Supreme Court announced the time and date for judgment after taking arguments from lawyers to parties on Monday.
