The Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal on Friday declared the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate in the 2018 governorship election in the state, Sen. Ademola Adeleke as winner.
It stated the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, were not validly returned
It also declared the rerun Osun governorship election on September 27, 2018, in seven polling units was illegal.
Nigerians, however, took to microblogging site, Twitter, to express mixed reactions.
Davido's Uncle Adeleke lost the governorship election in Osun state. As it is right now, Tribunal just declared him the winner of the election.
Atiku get hope abi??

From day one, I have never doubted the sacking of APC from Osun after that sham election. Today, I have once again been proven right. Adeleke has won his seat. Let the dancing continue. Oya, where is my Gbegiri!
