Reason Tribunal Sacked Adeleke As Osun Governor Emerges
Vondigest reports that the real reason why Osun tribunal sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke is beginning to emerge.
This online news platform gathered that the sack was due to irregularities in voters record.
This online platform recalls that the Osun Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, upturned the result of the governorship election held on July 16, 2022.
The tribunal found that there was over-voting in some local government areas in the state and deducted the results obtained from those areas from the overall votes obtained by Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a split decision, the majority decision favoured Adegboyega Oyetola, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the tribunal directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return earlier issued to Adeleke and issue a new one to the APC candidate.
According to The Punch, the court arrived at 314,921 votes for Oyetola and 290,266 for Adeleke.
