Just In: APC, Oyetola Appeal Osun Tribunal Judgment On Guber Elections

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, have requested that the Abuja Court of Appeal reverse the election tribunal’s judgment on the state’s gubernatorial poll.

The tribunal, by a majority judgment of two members on March 22 sacked Oyetola and declared the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Ademola Adeleke as the governor.

The APC and Oyetola asked that the court of Appeal approve their appeal and discard the petition by PDP and Adeleke in October 2018.

In a 39-ground notice of appeal filed by their team of lawyers, led by Wole Olanipekun (SAN), the APC and Oyetola condemned the majority judgment given by Justices Peter Obiora and Anyinla Gbolagunte on the grounds that it was perverse, replete with contradictions and not supported by evidence led by the petitioners.
