Appeal Court Rules On Gov Adeleke Alleged Forged Certificate




The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja has ruled that Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State did not forge his certificate to contest in the state gubernatorial election.

Naija News reports that the court gave the ruling on Friday.

The appellate court dismissed the ruling of the tribunal on certificate forgery.

The Court also stated that the All Progressives Congress and Oyetola failed to prove its over voting case against Adeleke.


Recall that the former governor of the state and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had challenged Ademola Adeleke’s victory in the July 16 governorship election, before the election petition tribunal in Osun state.

The tribunal led by Justice Tertse Kume, in a split judgement of 2 to 1, sacked Adeleke based on irregularities in 744 polling units across ten local government areas of the state.

It cancelled the alleged illegal votes and declared Oyetola the winner on legally valid votes.
