Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2018 gubernatorial election in Osun State, Mr Ademola Adeleke, has been declared winner of the exercise.
The Osun State governorship election tribunal sitting in Abuja held on Friday that Mr Adeleke was duly elected by the people of Osun State as Governor.
It was held that candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the poll, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, was not duly elected.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was therefore, directed to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Mr Oyetola and issue and fresh one to Mr Adeleke.
At the ruling today, the tribunal held that the re-run election conducted by INEC was illegal, null and void.
Justice Peter Obi, who read the decision of the a three-member panel of judges, declared that the returning officer of INEC had no powers to cancel the election in the seven polling units on September 22, 2018 leading to the rerun election on September 27, 2018,
Mr Adeleke of the PDP had polled a total of 254,698 votes against 254,345 votes garnered by Mr Oyetola of the APC before the election was declared inconclusive by the electoral body.
