Why Tribunal declared Ayetola Osun gov

by OkeomaNews

Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo on Friday sacked Ademola Adeleke, as the governor of Osun State.

In a majority judgment, Justice Tetsea Kume, the tribunal asked the Independent National Electoral commission to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Adeleke and issue Oyetola as the rightfully winner of the July 16 governorship election in the state.

The justice therefore deducted the over-voting observed from the votes scored by the candidates and declared that Oyetola won the election, having polled 314, 921, while Adeleke’s score came down to 290, 266.

Meanwhile, a minority decision by one of the judges is being read as of the time of filing this report.
