By Damilare Adeleye

The former governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola was in the street of the state with a number of his supporters to celebrate his victory at the State Governorship Election Petition tribunal.

Recall that the Tribunal have reversed the results of the 16 July 2022 governorship election which declared Governor Ademola Adeleke as the winner.

The court however held that there was over voting and declared Oyetola as the winner of the election after deduction of some votes.

The tribunal subsequently directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and his deputy, Kola Adewusi, both of whom has been sworn in.

The court chaired by Justice Terste Kume directed that the certificate of return should instead be issued to Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reacting to his victory, the former governor alongside others stormed the street in Iragbiji, Oyetola’s hometown to celebrate the tribunal’s verdict.

He also joined them in the process as he drove in a convoy in the road procession.
