Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State on Friday asked the Election Petition Tribunal in Osogbo to nullify the election of the governorship candidate of the People's Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke.

According to the governor, the election was fraught with certain irregularities.

According to the report on Punch Newspaper's Instagram Page @punchnewspapers, they wrote that, “He also said that Adeleke ought not to have been declared winner as he was not qualified to have contested the election in the first place, having submitted a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.”

Saturday PUNCH report that Adeleke was returned elected by the INEC, after defeating his closet Challenger, Oyetola, and 13 other candidates, scoring a total of 403, 371.

Oyetola got 375, 027 votes and won in 13 Local Government Areas of the state to come second in the election.
