The Appeal Court has reserved judgement on the case by Governor Ademola Adeleke challenging the decision of an election petition tribunal which nullified his victory in the Osun governorship election.

A three-member panel led by Justice Mohammed Shuaibu took the decision after taking the argument and adopting the briefs of all parties in the suit.

During proceedings today, Counsel to Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, held that a member of the panel, who is also a chief magistrate, did not air her opinion during the Judgement delivery.

Rather, she only appended her signature and the constitution mandates her to have aired her views about the suit.

But counsel to the All-Progressives Congress Candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, Lateef Fagbemi however held that mere signing of the judgment, and not making any comment afterwards does not make the judgment invalid.
