Oyetola appeal against Adeleke’s victory at Tribunal
Oyetola appeal against Adeleke’s victory at Tribunal. The Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress, APC, have appealed the Election Tribunal judgement that declared Ademola Adeleke winner of the 2018 governorship election in the state. Oyetola asked the Court of Appeal in Abuja to reverse the majority judgment delivered last Friday by the tribunal. The tribunal had, by a majority judgment of two members, voided the election of Oyetola, and declared Adeleke winner.
In a 39-ground notice of appeal filed by their team of lawyers, led by Wole Olanipekun (SAN), the APC and Oyetola faulted the majority judgment given by Justices Peter Obiora and Anyinla Gbolagunte.
APC and Oyetola want the Court of Appeal to dismiss Adeleke and PDP’s October 16 petition, uphold their (APC, Oyetola) appeal, and set aside the majority judgment.
