Governor Adeleke rejects Osun tribunal judgement, heads to Appeal Court

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has described the judgement of the governorship tribunal as ” a miscarriage of justice”, vowing to challenge the ruling at the Court of Appeal.

Recall that the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo on Friday, January 27, 2023, has sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke as the duly elected governor of the state.

The tribunal in a split document of two to one declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, should withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Adeleke and issue the same to former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
