Must read

The Supreme Court on Monday fixed Tuesday, May 9, to deliver judgment in the disputed July 16 governorship election in Osun State.

The apex court fixed the 24-hour period for the judgment delivery after taking arguments from parties involved in the matter.

Incumbent Governor, Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke, who stood for the poll on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is trying to save his job against the petition and an appeal filed by Adegboyega Oyetola who was the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate.

The judgement is expected to be delivered by 2 pm on May 9.

At today’s proceedings, Prince Lateef Fagbemi, SAN argued for the APC.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had on Friday, March 24, vacated the tribunal judgment that nullified the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State.

The appellate court, in a unanimous decision by a three-member panel of Justices, held that the appeal Adeleke lodged to challenge his sack by the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal was meritorious.
