Afrobeats star, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has sought God’s intervention ahead of a Supreme Court ruling which involves his uncle and governor of Osun, Ademola Adeleke, in being made legitimate number one citizen of the state.
The Supreme Court had fixed May 9, 2023, to deliver a judgment in the July 16 governorship election tussle in Osun State. A five-member panel of Justices led by Justice John Okoro fixed the date after all the parties involved adopted their written briefs in the matter.
Recalled that the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, had set aside the decision of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which nullified the election of Senator Ademola Adeleke as Governor of Osun State.
Consequently, the Appellate Court affirmed Adeleke as the winner of the State’s governorship election of July 2022.
Speaking ahead of the ruling, Davido who was actively supportive of his uncle’s bid prior to the polls, was optimistic of a favourable outcome.
He tweeted, “Osun State Election Petition hearing comes up at the Supreme Court today. We look forward to the judicial affirmation of @AAdeleke_01
(The people’s) mandate. The hardest part is done, winning a free and fair Election. May God let the court do the right thing.”
