Osun Guber Tussle: Supreme Court sets Tuesday for judgement

The Supreme Court has scheduled 2pm tomorrow, Tuesday, May 9 for delivery of judgment on the appeal filed by former Osun Governor, Gboyega Oyetola against the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke.

Recall Oyetola filed an appeal to the Supreme court seeking the reversal of the March 25 judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which affirmed Adeleke’s victory in the July 16, 2022 governorship election.

The Appeal Court had, in its judgement, set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which held in favour of Oyetola and sacked Adeleke.

A five-member panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice John Okoro announced the time and date for judgment after taking arguments from lawyers of both parties on Monday.
