The Election Petition Tribunal chaired by Justice Tertse Kume has sacked Osun Governor Senator Ademola Adeleke and declared Adegboyega Oyetola as the winner of the July 16, 2022 governorship election.

Reading the majority judgement, Justice Kume said the election was marred by over-voting.

After deducting the over-voting figure, the tribunal said Oyetola scored 314,921 votes while Ademola gathered 290,266.

The judges consequently ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, should withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Adeleke and issue the same to former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
