Osun governorship: APC reacts as court sacks Oyetola, declares Adeleke winner



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, on Friday, said it will appeal the tribunal judgement that declared Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the September 2018 re-run governorship election in Osun.

Mr Kunle Oyatomi, the APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, in a statement on Friday in Osogbo, stated that the verdict would not stand superior legal scrutiny.

”We are going to appeal the judgment. The verdict cannot stand superior legal scrutiny. Therefore we will appeal against it,’’ NAN quoted Oyatomi as saying,

DAILY POST reports that the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Friday declared Adeleke winner.

The three-member panel said during its ruling that the rerun election that held on Sept. 27, 2018, was illegal.

The tribunal, therefore, deducted the votes scored by the APC candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, in the rerun after declaring the election illegal.

The tribunal said Adeleke won the election at the first ballot on Sept. 22 and the rerun that INEC devised to reach a final conclusion a week later was illegal.
