Senator Ademola Adeleke, who contested the Osun elections last year on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, has spoken for the first time, since the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal declared him winner of the controversial state election.

“To God be the glory,” Adeleke simply tweeted.

The tribunal declared the September 27 rerun election in the state illegal.

The three-man panel of the Tribunal gave the judgement on Friday following the petition filed by Adeleke, against the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.

The Tribunal also ruled that PDP and Adeleke proved that it was the state Returning Officer who cancelled the results in 7 Polling Units, adding that the petitioners also proved that the Returning Officer has no power to cancel election results of a polling unit.

The Tribunal also deducted 2,029 votes from APC scores and 1,246 votes from PDP votes in 17 polling units where there was non-compliance.
