Governor of Osun, Senator Ademola Adeleke has dedicated his victory at the Supreme Court to God and the people of the state.
The Apex Court today struck out an appeal by former Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenging Adeleke’s victory in the July 16, 2022 Osun governorship election.
The former Governor’s appeal was premised on over-voting. But a five-man panel of justices dismissed Oyetola’s appeal, saying it lacked merit, and upheld Adeleke’s win at the Appeal Court.

“They stood by me to let me know that they love me and I love them back.”
Governor Adeleke also addressed party faithfuls and supporters who thronged his country home in Ede to celebrate the victory.
His party equally lauded the judgement, saying it affirms the PDP’s popularity among Nigerians.
