Tension In Osun As Court Rules On 2022 Guber Outcome Between Gov Adeleke, Oyetola Today

Oyetola and Adeleke

Justice Tetse Kume-led’s three-man panel will rule today over the governorship election held in Osun State on the 16th of July, 2022 which was won by Ademola Adeleke of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

VANTAGE NEWS reports that the tribunal is set to rule on the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its governorship candidate, Gboyega Oyetola against Governor Adeleke.

Oyetola and APC are challenging the victory of Adeleke who was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Oyetola through his counsels, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), and Akin Olujinmi (SAN), insisted that Adeleke did not win the majority of lawful votes and should not have been declared the winner of the election.

Fagbemi and Olujinmi are also challenging alleged inconsistencies in the certificates presented by Adeleke to INEC.

Meanwhile, the Osun State Police Command has warned troublemakers as tribunal rules today.

The spokesperson of the command, Yemisi Opalola through a statement said, “Osun State Police Command wishes to assure the general public, especially the good people of the state, of adequate security before, during, and beyond the judgment.

“The Police, in collaboration with other security agencies in the state, have put all necessary security measures in place to deal decisively within the ambit of the law with anyone, group of persons who might attempt to foment trouble.

“Therefore, Osun State Police Command is using this medium to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their children and wards to stay out of trouble/violence. They should not allow themselves to be used by any vicious politicians to cause a crisis in the state, as the command will not tolerate any kind of thuggery or hooliganism.”
