The Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja has declared the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate in the 2018 governorship election in the state, Sen. Ademola Adeleke as winner.

It stated the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, were not validly returned

It also declared the rerun Osun governorship election on September 27, 2018 in seven polling units was illegal.

The tribunal ruled that the exercise was borne out of an illegal cancellation of results in the polling units during the September 22, 2018 original poll.

It added that the Returning Officers who declared the results cancelled, lacked the power to do it.

Naija News recalls the Peoples Democratic Party and its governorship candidate, Ademola Adeleke, petitioned the tribunal to declare Adeleke the governor-elect having polled the highest lawful votes.
