The Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on Friday January 27, 2023 deliver judgement in the suit filed by former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola challenging the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke.

It would be recalled that the All Progressive Congress (APC) and its candidate, Oyetola, had dragged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Senator Adeleke to the tribunal having been defeated in the July16, 2022 gubernatorial election.

The Secretary to the tribunal, David Mike, confirmed the development in a notice sent to the parties, obtained by OSUN DEFENDER on Tuesday.

The three-man panel led by Justice Tertse Kume had two weeks ago entertained the final addresses of counsels to the plaintiff, the first respondent – the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), 2nd respondent – Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the third respondent – Governor Adeleke.

According to Nigeria’s electoral laws, the verdict of the tribunal may be challenged up to the Supreme Court.
