The Supreme Court will today deliver its judgment on an appeal seeking to sack Governor of Osun State Ademola Adeleke from office.

A five-man panel of Justices of the apex court adjourned to resolve the legal dispute surrounding the governorship election that was held in the state on July 16, 2022.

It would be recalled that the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal led by Justice Tertse Kume which sat in Osogbo on January 27, in a split decision, voided the declaration of Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, as the winner of the gubernatorial election.

But the Appeal Court, in a judgment by Justice Mohammed Shaibu on March 24, 2023, declared Adeleke returned as the authentic winner and awarded a cost of 500, 000 Naira against the APC and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.

Dissatisfied with the judgment, both Oyetola and the APC took the matter before the Supreme Court which adjourned the case for judgment after all the parties adopted their final briefs of argument.
