Tribunal declares PDP’s Adeleke winner of Osun governorship election

The Election Petitions Tribunal set up for the 2018 governorship election in Osun State has declared Ademola Adeleke winner of the election.

The three-man panel said during its ruling in Abuja Friday afternoon that the rerun election that held on September 27 was illegal.

The tribunal therefore deducted the votes scored by the APC candidate Gboyega Oyetola at the rerun illegal.

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

The ruling could affect several results from the 2019 elections, where INEC had declared results in several states inconclusive and ordered rerun.

The reruns would hold on Saturday
