Singer, Sina Rambo has reacted to the sacking of his father as the Osun State governor by the state governorship election tribunal.
Hours after the tribunal read its verdict, invalidating the election of Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and declaring Adegboye Oyetola as winner of the July 16 election, Shina Rambo said,
“Two judgments were issued today at the tribunal. One in favour of PDP. Nothing changed. Sen. Ademola Adeleke remains the governor of Osun State.
“We move to the Appeal Court. Peace be still. The mandate of Osun will not be stolen. H.E.Ademola Adeleke remains the Governor of Osun State.”
Recall that in August 2022, Oyetola who contested for a second term in office lost the election to Adeleke. He petitioned the tribunal to challenge the victory of Adeleke, with the claims that there was overvoting in 749 polling units across 10 LGAs of the state.
Delivering judgment on Friday, January. 27, the tribunal held that the governorship election was characterized by over-voting, adding that after deducting the excessive votes, Oyetola’s figures rose to 314, 921, while Adeleke’s came down to 290, 266.
The tribunal led by Justice Terste Kume then ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and his deputy, Kola Adewusi. It directed that the certificate of return be issued to Oyetola instead..
