JUST IN: Tribunal fixes date to deliver judgement in Osun governorship election
The Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has fixed Friday to deliver judgement on the petition challenging the declaration of Governor Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the July 16 election.
Recalls that the former Governor, Gboyega Oyetola and his All Progressives Congress (APC) filed the petition against Mr Adeleke, his party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the electoral commission, INEC.
At its last sitting in Osogbo, the chairman of the tribunal, Tertsea Kume, said the panel would communicate the date for the judgement to the parties in the petition.
However, on Tuesday, the tribunal communicated the date by pasting the notice on the board at the entrance of the court where the tribunal was sitting.
According to the notice signed by the tribunal secretary, it indicated that the panel will deliver judgment on Friday at 9 a.m.
The three-member panel started hearing the election petition in August 2022.
