Senator Ademola Adeleke

The Court of Appeal in Abuja will on Thursday (today) deliver judgment in the separate appeals by the PDP and its candidate in the Osun governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The date of judgement was announced by the court in hearing notices sent to parties involved in the case.

The PDP and Adeleke are contesting the April 2, 2019 ruling by Justice Othman Musa of the High Court of the FCT in Bwari, which voided Adeleke’s candidacy for the election on the grounds that he was not qualified, having not possessed valid secondary school certificate.

The judgment was in the suit filed by Wahab Raheem and Adam Habeeb, who claimed that Adeleke was not qualified, under Section 177 of the Constitution to contest the governorship election.

A panel of the Court of Appeal, led by Justice Adamu Jauro, at the conclusion of hearing in the appeals on May 14 this year, told parties that a date for judgment would be communicated to them.
