The Supreme Court, on Thursday, affirmed Senator Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the Governor-elect of Osun State.
Adeleke was declared the winner of the gubernatorial election that was held in the State on July 16.
The apex court, in a unanimous judgement by a five-man panel of justices, dismissed an appeal that was lodged against Adeleke by Prince Dotun Babayemi who laid claim to the governorship ticket of the PDP.
Babayemi emerged from a parallel primary election that was held by a faction of the party in the State.
The panel had maintained that the appeal was incompetent, stressing that it was filed outside the 14 days period provided by the law.
