Nigeria Sways Through Yet Another Major Wave With The Supreme Court's Declaration Of Gboyega Oyetola Winner Of The Osun State Governorship Election
By Chioma Okwu

- The fight for the right winner of the Osun State Governorship election comes to a thought-provoking end as the Supreme Court declared Gboyega Oyetola as the winner of the September 2018 election.

- At the ruling today, the seven-man panel led by Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivor gave a split decision with five Justices confirming Oyetola while two consented for Ademola Adeleke.

- Delivering the ruling, Justice Rhodes-Vivour dismissed Adeleke’s application and confirmed Oyetola as the rightful winner of the election.


The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its governorship candidate in the September 2018 election in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, challenging the election of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress.

The apex court in a split decision of five to two, the apex court’s panel of seven Justices held that the proceedings and the majority judgment of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal which had declared the PDP as the winner of the poll were a nullity.

Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour who read the lead majority judgment of the apex court held that the absence of Justice Peter Obiorah who later read the lead judgment of the tribunal during the February 6, 2019 hearing, had rendered the entire proceedings of the said tribunal and its judgment a nullity.


Nigerians are, however, unpleased with the ruling. As long as they're concerned, the supreme court has fed the nation a spoonful of lies.
