Fear has gripped residents of Osun State, especially those in the camps of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and ruling the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of today’s Supreme Court judgment on the last governorship election won by the APC candidate, Adegboyega Oyetola.

The apex court will deliver the judgment in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The PDP and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, challenged the victory of the APC and Oyetola at the Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.

On March 22, 2019, the tribunal declared Adeleke as the winner of the election, but the judgment was upturned by the Appeal Court on May 9, 2019.

Since the decision of the apex court is the final on the matter, the two political parties despite court representations have embarked on prayers from various quarters for the judgment to be in their favor.

The two camps have, however, affirmed their confidence in the judiciary and are also optimistic that they will carry the day.

The southwest zonal secretary of the PDP, Rev Bunni Jenyo, said yesterday that the evidence on the ground proved that Adeleke won the election.

Jenyo said that the PDP does not believe in technicality but reality, adding that he has confidence in the judiciary and that the judgment would favor his party.

The director of Publicity, Research, and Strategy of the APC in Osun, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, countered that Oyetola won the election legitimately, adding that the judiciary would today, give credence to his assertion.

He noted that the judgment of the Court of Appeal that upturned the verdict of the tribunal was a clear indication that judgment would go their way today.

Meanwhile, the speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, Hon Timothy Owoeye, has called for calm among the people, saying that the residents should see themselves as one and unite to move the state forward.
