After sitting to hear the appeal on the Osun state governorship elections, the Supreme court today fixed July 5 for judgement on the appeal.
Senator Ademola Adeleke had challenged the victory of Gbenga Oyetola at the polls. On March 22, the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja declared Ademola Adeleke the winner of the elections, but Oyetola appealed the judgement.
On May 9, the Court of Appeal in Abuja nullified the tribunal’s ruling. Adeleke appealed to the supreme court.
A seven man panel presided over by Justice Tanko Mohamed listened to the submissions and fixed the date.
