Just In: Supreme Court announces July 5th for date to decide true winner of Osun governorship election

The Supreme Court has fixed July 5 for judgment in the suit by the Peoples Democratic Party challenging the election of Gboyega Oyetola as Governor of Osun State.

A seven-member panel led by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Muhammad, made the date known after counsel in the matter adopted and argued their brief of argument in the matter.

The PDP and its candidate in the September 2018 governorship election, Ademola Adeleke, in their appeal asked the apex court to set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal and restore the judgment of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal which declared Mr Adeleke as the winner of the governorship election. Till then!
