Osun Guber: Appeal Court Declares Adeleke Authentic Candidate Of PDP

The  Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, Ondo State, has upheld the judgement of the lower court which affirmed Osun State Governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke, as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for last Saturday’s governorship election.

Dotun Babayemi, another chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  had taken Adeleke before a federal high court in Osogbo, seeking to be declared as the PDP candidate for the July 16 governorship election in Osun state.

The PDP had declared Adeleke winner of the March 8, 2021 Osun State governorship primary  held at Osogbo City Stadium.

But  Babayemi on the same date emerged  governorship candidate for the Osun guber poll during a parallel Congress conducted by a faction of the party at the Women Development Centre in Osogbo.

Babayemi had filed a suit at  the High Court  to challenge the validity of the primary conducted by the national leadership of the party but lost in the court

Not satisfied with the judgment of the High court, he proceeded to the appellate court to challenge the judgment.

But the appellate court on Wednesday also struck out the his appeal.

The court certify the  primary election that produced Adeleke as PDP’s gubernatorial candidate  and declared the now governor-election as the authentic candidate of the PDP in Saturday’s poll.
