There is a high level of anxiety amongst political gladiators in Osun State, as Appeal Court sitting in Abuja will(today) Thursday, May 9, 2019, deliver judgement on the Osun State governorship election matter before it.
The incumbent governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, who was the candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, in the September 22 governorship poll, had filed an appeal before the court following March 22 judgement of the election petition tribunal, which sacked him from the office.
The majority judgement of the Tribunal had declared the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleke, winner of the poll, while maintaining that the September 27 rerun election was null and void.
Oyetola, in his appeal thereafter prayed the court to upturn the judgement, citing certain legal loopholes.
Meanwhile, the notification for judgement on the appeal was communicated to the parties Wednesday morning by the Senior Registrar of the court, making it a 24-hour notice.
More to come…
