Supreme Court affirms Rauf Aregbesola as Osun state governor

The Supreme Court today affirmed the August 9th 2014 election of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state. The state PDP Governorship candidate Senator Iyiola Omisore had approached the apex court to vacate the previous ruling of the Court of Appeal and the Osun state Election Tribunal that had upheld the election of Aregbesola. Omisore asked the court to declare him winner of the election, accusing Mr Aregbesola and his party, APC of engaging in electoral malpractice during the election.

A seven man panel of judges in the Supreme court led by Justice John Fabiyi, ruled that Aregbesola was dully elected and is not found guilty of any election malpractice.
