The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Thursaday declared Governor Gboyega Oyetola winner of the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal.
Chairman of the five-man panel, Justice Jumai Hannatu-Sankey upturned the tribunal judgment which returned Senator Ademola Adeleke of the PDP as the winner of the election.
The panel delivered a majority judgment of four-to-one, saying that the decision of the tribunal which sacked Oyetola as governor was not valid and consequently set aside the entire proceedings of the tribunal.
The famous musician Davido, who is a nephew to Adeleke, wrote on Twitter to share disappointment:
My people. We can’t hide our disappointment this judgment of the Court of Appeal. It hurts, it’s extremely painful but guess what? It is not the end. Far from it. Everyone remain calm. I want to urge all our supporters to remain calm in this time.
As you all know there is one last and most important lap. It is time for that last lap and the God I know and serve is in control.
We won the first leg. We have lost the second leg but I am certain the Highest Court in the land will rectify and restore all that has been stolen from us with this judgment! Everybody stay calm and stay safe! See you on the other side.
