Reactions As Tribunal Sacks Adeleke As Osun Governor

Reactions have trailed the sack of Ademola Adeleke as the Governor of Osun State by the Election Petition Tribunal.

Naija News earlier reported that the ruling was given on Friday by a three-men panel led by Justice Tertse Kume.

The majority judgement of two judges against one ordered that the Certificate of Return should be withdrawn from Adeleke and issued to Adegboyega Oyetola.

The majority judgement which was read by the Chairman, Justice Tertse Kume said Oyetola scored the majority lawful votes of 314,931 against Adeleke’s 219,666

The tribunal sacked Adeleke for overvoting in some polling units across the State.

Following the development, some netizens took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to express their opinions regarding the matter.

Below are some of the reactions.
