BREAKING: Osun Poll: Incumbent Governor, Oyetola Submits Petition At Tribunal

Osun state Governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the July 16 gubernatorial Election, Gboyega Oyetola, has submitted his petition at the election petition Tribunal, Osogbo.

INEC had declared Senator Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the gubernatorial election, but the Governor had since vowed to challenge Adeleke’s victory at the tribunal.

Accompanied by his wife, Kafayat Oyetola and the State Party Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, Governor Oyetola stormed the premises of the Osun State High court on Friday to submit the petitions.

Oyetola, who is challenging the victory of Senator Ademola Adeleke, also dragged the Independent National Electoral Commission before the court.

The petitioners who were seeking justice challenged the results of the election in some of the Local Government Areas and prayed the Tribunal to return their mandate to them.

This is even as the first petitioner and Governor of the State, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola was physically present at the Tribunal to sign the petition filed before the tribunal.

Addressing journalists shortly after the petition was filed, signed and sealed, one of the petitioners’ Counsels, Mr. Kunle Adegoke (SAN) expressed confidence in the substance of the petition to ensure victory for Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and the ruling party.

According to him, the legal team of the petitioners have established fundamental grounds to seek justice and ensure victory for them in view of the substance of the case.

“We ‘re here to file a petition on behalf of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in respect of July 16 governorship election in the State. The petition has been filed and it has been received by the registry of the tribunal.

“In the next few days, activities will be in top gear in respect to the proceedings of the tribunal. So, we are here today with the petition which has fundamental grounds upon which we believe the election ought to have been returned in favour of Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola and All Progressives Congress (APC).

“We are confident of the petition and we are confident of victory”, he added.
