The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital on Monday, upheld the victory of Gov. Seyi Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naija News reports that the victory of Governor Makinde at the governorship election tribunal comes after Adebayo Adelabu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had filed a petition against Makinde in the March 9 governorship election in the state.
Adelabu and his party had challenged the declaration of Makinde by INEC as the winner of March 9 governorship election in Oyo State.
Recall that Makinde of the PDP polled 515,621 votes to defeat his closest counterpart of the APC, Adelabu who had 357,982 votes.
