0

Supreme Court has taken final Decision in PDP’s suit against Oyetola’s participation in Osun Governorship election.

Thursday, the Supreme Court denied an appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to nullify the participation of former Osun State governor Gboyega Oyetola and his deputy, Benedict Alabi, in the 16 July 2022 governorship election.

Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court in Abuja had, in a decision dated September 30, 2022, nullified the participation of Oyetola and Alabi in the governorship election on the grounds that their nomination forms were endorsed by Mai Mala Buni, the acting Chairman of the APC and the current Governor of Yobe State.
