Adamu Garba Reacts As Court Sacks Adeleke As Osun Governor

Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba has hailed the sack of Ademola Adeleke as the governor of Osun state.

The sack order was given today following the ruling of the Osun State Election Petitions Tribunal.

The tribunal, in a two versus one ruling, had declared Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the authentic winner of the election.

The tribunal, headed by Justice Tetsea Kume, ruled that Oyetola scored the majority lawful votes of 314,931 against Adeleke’s 219,666.

It subsequently deducted the over-voting observed from the votes scored by the candidates and declared that Oyetola won the election, having polled 314, 921, while Adeleke’s score came down to 290, 266.

The tribunal directed INEC to withdraw Adeleke’s certificate of return and issue another one to Oyetola who won a majority of the lawful votes.

Reacting to the development, Garba, an APC chieftain, said Adeleke was a temporary governor and his sack by the tribunal was justified.

He wrote: “I told you that Ademola Adeleke is a temporary governor, you thought it was a joke, but now you know.

“Thanks to the APC government, the signed electoral act 2022 made it impossible for stolen mandates to succeed.”
