OSUN ELECTION: Tribunal upholds Aregbesola’s Victory

The Osun State election petitions tribunal on Friday upheld the victory of Governor Rauf Aregbesola in the August 9, 2014 governorship election in the state

The tribunal headed by Justice Elizabeth Ipejime in its verdict declared Aregbesola as duly elected governor of the state.

The tribunal said the Independent National Electoral Commission was right in declaring the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate as winner of the election having scored the highest number of valid votes.

Aregbesola had defeated his Peoples Democratic Party’s challenger, Senator Iyiola Omisore, in the election after recording 392, 284 votes, while his opponent polled 292 742 votes.

Omisore thereafter challenged the election results at the tribunal, citing irregularities in the conduct of the poll, among other objections.
