Senator Ademola Adeleke has asked the Supreme Court to uphold his appeal and set aside the judgment of the Appeal Court, while restoring the judgment of the tribunal which declared him the winner of September 2018 governorship election in Osun State.

Responding to the application on Monday, counsel to Governor Gboyega Oyetola, Mr. Wole Olanipekun asked the court to dismiss the appeal by senator Adeleke while upholding and affirming the judgment of the appellate court.

In his own response counsel to INEC, Mr. Yusuf Ali told the Apex Court that the commission has not filed any motion but will abide by the judgment of the court.

He however asked the court to dismiss the motion.

Speaking on behalf of the APC, the ruling party’s counsel Mr. Olumide Olujimi also said he did not file an appeal but will want the court to dismiss the appeal.

The Supreme Court adjourned the judgment for July 5, 2019, a seven-man panel of the court, led by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Muhammad chose the date after taking final arguments in respect of the main appeal.

The new date comes before the 8th of July deadline when the time for the hearing of the appeal will elapse in line with the 4th alteration of the constitution which stipulates that a post-election appeal must be heard with 60 days from the judgment of the lower court. (Channels TV)
