Osun: Bayo Onanuga Reveals Next Step After Appeal Court Ruling Against Oyetola
The Director of Media and Publicity, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Team, Bayo Onanuga has reacted after the Appeal Court ruling of Friday on the Osun State governorship seat.
Onanuga in a post via his Twitter account revealed that the camp of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not giving up yet and the next action is to head for the Supreme Court.
Naija News recalls the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on Friday delivered a ruling on the Osun State governorship election contested by Governor Ademola Adeleke and his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola.
The Court stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Oyetola failed to prove their overvoting case against Adeleke.
The Court of Appeal set aside the decision of the Osun State Governorship tribunal and upheld the Governorship of Senator Ademola Adeleke.
In a ruling on Friday, the Appeal Court affirmed Adeleke as the authentic governor of Osun State.
Reacting, Onanuga wrote on Twitter: “Breaking: Appeal Court affirms Ademola Adeleke’s election in Osun. Case moves to Supreme Court.”
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 judgment 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.
The tribunal had also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and give it to Oyetola.
