Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the judgement of the Supreme Court that upheld the election of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
The apex court in its ruling, dismissed the appeal by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last governorship election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke.
In a majority decision of five-to-two, read by Justice Olabode Rodes-Vivour, the court held that the failure of a member of the election tribunal, Justice Peter Obiora to sit on February 6, 2019, rendered the entire proceedings and the judgment given by the tribunal null and void.
Reacting in a post on Twitter on Friday, Fani-Kayode stated that Adeleke was robbed.
He wrote: “I am not surprised by Oyetola’s so-called “victory” at the Supreme Court.
“Adeleke was robbed.
“Nigeria is finished.”
