The country’s Apex court on Thursday  has affirmed that the Governor-elect  of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke  was  duly nominated  as the  governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in the July 16 governorship primary election   in the State.


In a unanimous  judgement  by a five-man panel of Justices , on Thursday dismissed  the appeal  filled  against  Ademola Adeleke  by Prince Dotun  Babayemi,who also contested  a parallel  governorship  primary election   of the party in Osun State.



The Interviews Nigeria  recalls  that Senator Adeleke won the primary election  conducted at the town’s stadium , while  Babayemi , also  emerged as the winner  of the primary election conducted in a different venue by his faction.



Counsel to the Appellant , Mr.  Adebayo Adelodun (SAN) withdrew the appeal  after  the panel led by  Justice Amina Augie drew his attention  t the fact that  the case was statute barred.


The Panel  had maintained that  the  appeal was incompetent , affirming that  it was filed outside  the 14 days period provided  by law.


On May 18, 2022, in his judgement, Justice Nathaniel  Ayo-Emmanuel  of the Federal  High Court , Osogbo, had upheld  the governorship  primary election  that produced Senator Adeleke.


In the same vein, the Court of Appeal  , Akure Division ,  in his judgement of 20 July   on the appeal  filed against  the Federal High Court , Osogbo, affirmed  the judgement  of the lower  court and therefore dismissed the case .


There has been  wild jubilations at the Ede country home of  the governor-elect  , singing and  dancing  just after the supreme court verdict was in favour of  Ademola Adeleke (Governor –Elect).
