This is in accordance with the Federal High Court’s Osogbo-based judgement that dismissed the council members and chairmen of local governments.


Remember that on Friday, Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel of the Osogbo-based Federal High Court ruled that the local government election held by the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC) was invalid.

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawsuit asking the court to prevent the OSIEC from holding the Osun local government election was the basis for Justice Ayo-Emmanuel’s decision.

In his ruling, the judge found that sections 29 and 32 of the Electoral Act of 2022 were broken by OSIEC in holding the local government election that followed.

Abiodun Idowu, the chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria in Osun, has urged his constituents to maintain composure and harmony.

Idowu claimed that the All Progressives Congress leadership and all 69 LGA chairmen had filed a “Notice of Appeal and Stay of Execution” in opposition to the decision.
