The Supreme Court has affirmed Senator Ademola Adeleke as the validly elected governor of Osun, putting to rest months-long legal battle.
Lack of Concrete Evidence to Support Claims
The court ruled that the appellants, Mr Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress (APC), did not produce a concrete evidence.

The evidence submitted by the appellants was not considered as the primary source of records for accredited voters in the polling units.
Appellants’ evidence did not include the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines of the 744 poling units in dispute.
Thus, the appellants relied on a secondary, insufficient, and inadmissible means to prove their allegations.
Expert Analysis not Independent
The court ruled that the expert analysis presented by the APC and Mr Oyetola was not independent.
iexclusivenews understands that the expert in question was a member of the APC and an associate of Mr Oyetola.
Which implies they had a vested interest in the analysis.
This finding affirmed that the appellant failed to provide the necessary proof for their petition.
Collapse of the Appellant Case
The lead judgment prepared and delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, declared that the appellant’s case had collapsed at the conclusion of evidence.
Mr Oyetola sought relief at the apex court after the Appeal Court upturned his victory at the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal. Which affirmed Mr Adeleke as the validly elected governor.
Overall, this ruling from the Supreme Court has put to rest the months-long legal battle between the two candidates. Affirms Senator Adeleke as the Governor of Osun State.
