Appeal Court Postpones Judgement On Osun Governorship Appeal

The Appeal Court, on Monday, postponed judgement on the Osun State Governorship Appeal filed by Governor Ademola Adeleke.

Governor Adeleke had, on February 9th, appealed the judgement of the Osun State Governorship Tribunal, which nullified his election and ruled in favour of the former Governor of the State, Gboyega Oyetola.

Gov Adeleke prayed the court to reject the ruling of the Osun State tribunal describing it as a “miscarriage of justice”.
The governor is equally seeking “an order striking out the petition for want of competence and jurisdiction or in the alternative, an order dismissing the petition on the merit”.

The governor noted that “The tribunal, in its judgment, erred in law and displayed bias against the appellant when it made reference to the appellant’s dance at his inauguration as governor of Osun State, which was never an issue before the lower tribunal,” .
