Ademola Adeleke, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Osun state, has filed a notice of appeal at the supreme court over the verdict of the appeal court.

The appellate court had declared Isiaka Oyetola as the duly elected governor of Osun, dismissing the verdict of the tribunal which favoured Adeleke.

In a statement, Niyi Owolade, a counsel to Adeleke, said the PDP candidate asked the apex court to set aside the verdict of the appeal court and uphold that of the tribunal.

Owolade said Onyeachi Ikpeazu, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), is leading 23 senior lawyers to file four appeals against “each of the four majority judgements of the appeal court.”

“The appeals are against [the] majority judgement in favour of Gboyega Oyetola, All Progressives Congres, the Independent National Electoral Commission and the striking out of the cross appeals of Senator Adeleke,” the lawyer said.
