A palpable tension in Osun political space as the election tribunal is set to rule on the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its gubernatorial candidate, Gboyega Oyetola against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Ademola Adeleke.
Justice Tetse Kume-led’s three-man panel will rule today over the governorship election held in Osun State on the 16th of July, 2022.
Oyetola and APC are challenging the victory of Adeleke who was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The counsel representing Oyetola, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), and Akin Olujinmi (SAN), insisted that Adeleke did not win the majority of lawful votes and should not have been declared the winner of the election.
They also said there were inconsistencies in the certificates presented by Adeleke.
