The Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja today declared Ademola Adeleke, the Peoples Democratic Party’s goververnorship candidate as the winner of the 2018 governorship election in the state.

It held that the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, were not validly returned.

It also declared that the September 27, 2018 supplementary governorship election held in seven polling units was illegal.

The tribunal held that the supplementary election was a product of an illegal cancellation of the results in the seven polling units during the September 22, 2018 main election.

It ruled that the Returning Officer who cancelled the results had no power to do so.
