There are indications of apprehension within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and All Progressives Congress,APC, in Osun as appeal court will commence today over the tribunal judgement delivered two months ago on the state governorship election.

Blaze Newz recalls that the tribunal in Osogbo had in January sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke and declared immediate governor, Gboyega Oyetola as duly elected governor of Osun.

The tribunal in its judgement ordered reduction of votes recorded for both Oyetola and Adeleke in polling unites where the Independence National Electoral Commission,INEC, admitted there were seaminly over-voting.

The reduction of the votes made Oyetola to retain the highest votes, consequently, the tribunal declared Oyetola winner of the Osun July 16, 2022 gubernatorial election.

Adeleke, Osun PDP and INEC are ,however, appealing against the tribunal judgement.

This appeal will be the second experience for the incumbent governor after he also went through this process in 2019 to retain his mandate from Oyetola after he was declared winner by tribunal but eventually lost at the appeal including the Supreme Court.
