Breaking: Supreme Court adjourns judgement on Osun election
The Supreme Court has adjourned the judgement on the Osun state governorship election. The apex court in its sitting headed by Ibrahim Muhammad who is the acting chief justice of Nigeria on Monday, June 17, adjourned the case till Friday, July 5.
Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had been declared winner of the Osun election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had challenged the victory and was declared winner by the election tribunal. The Court of Appeal in Abuja, however, overturned the ruling of the tribunal and recognised Oyetola as winner of the election. Adeleke then filed a case at the Supreme Court hoping to get the victory overturned.
