Following the results of the governorship election in Osun on July 16, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), filed a petition before the Election Petition Tribunal at the State High Court in Osogbo on Friday.

The petitioners seeking justice challenged the election results in some of the Local Government Areas and asked the Tribunal to restore their mandate.

This is despite the fact that the first petitioner, Governor Oyetola, was physically present at the Tribunal to sign the petition.

Remember that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Senator Ademola Adeleke the winner of the July 16 governorship election, having polled 403,271 votes to Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s 375,027 votes.

Speaking to journalists shortly after the petition was filed, Mr. Kunle Adegoke (SAN), one of the petitioners’ Counsels, expressed confidence in the petition’s substance to ensure victory for Governor Oyetola and the ruling party.
