Rahaman Abiola|March. 28, 2019
All Progressive Congress (APC) and Osun governor, Gboyega Oyetola, have asked the Abuja Appeal Court to reverse the decision of tribunal panel recognising Senator Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the state governorship election held in 2018.
The panel also mandated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue the certificate of return to Senator Adeleke
But in a 39 count notice filed before the Abuja Appeal Court, Oyetola and APC, through their counsel, Wole Olanipekun (SAN), argued that the evidences upon which the tribunal's judgement was built was replete and untenable, The Nation reports.
They, however, urged the court to reverse the Friday, March 22 judgement and dismiss the October 16, 2018 petition by both Adeleke and his party, PDP.
