The supporters of Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun State, celebrated as the Supreme Court upheld his victory in the July 16, 2022 governorship election.


Jubilation in court premises:

As soon as the justices of the Supreme Court struck out an appeal by former governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), supporters of Adeleke, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), started jubilating in the court premises.

Lack of evidence on overvoting allegation:

The apex court held that the appellant failed to adduce enough evidence to prove his allegation of overvoting in the governorship election.

Failure to consider preliminary objections:

The panel unanimously held that the failure of the election tribunal in Osun to consider the preliminary objections raised by Adeleke and the PDP at the trial level amounted to detail of a fair hearing and rendered the entire proceeding a nullity.
