The Court of Appeal, Abuja, on Monday, reserved judgment in an appeal filed by Mr. Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against a judgment of the tribunal, which invalidated his election as governor of Osun.
The three-member panel led by Justice M. F. Shuaibu, after listening to counsel to Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN, and Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, who appeared for the immediate-past governor, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, said judgment would be delivered at a later date.
Oyo News reports that while Adeleke is the appellant, Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are 1st and 2nd respondents, respectively, in the appeal.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the PDP are also joined as 3rd respondents and 4th respondents, respectively.
However, INEC, represented by Paul Ananaba, SAN, and PDP, represented by Alex Iziyon, SAN, did not file any process in the case.
The appellant court is also expected to sit on the cross-appeals filed by PDP, INEC, and Oyetola.
