Adegboyega Oyetola led a jubilation procession with large number of APC supporters after he was declared winner of the July 16, 2022 governorship election on Friday.
The Osun Governorship Election Tribunal had earlier in the day nullified the election of Ademola Adeleke as governor of Osun.
The tribunal nullified the election on the basis of over-voting and violation of the Electoral Act by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Thousands stormed the street in Iragbiji, Oyetola’s hometown to celebrate the tribunal’s verdict. He also joined them in the process as he drove in a convoy in the road procession.
