It is a victorious day for the Governor elect in Osun State, Mr Jackson Adeleke as the Supreme Court of Nigeria, on Thursday, dismissed an appeal filed by Prince Oyedotun Babayemi seeking to be declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the now-rested July 16 Governorship election in Osun State.



The apex Court in Suit No: SC/CV/914/2022: (Prince Oyedotun Babayemi V PDP, INEC & Ademola Adeleke), affirmed Senator Ademola Adeleke as the validly elected PDP candidate for the said election.

Babayemi had filed his Notice of Appeal in time but but filed the second one on Day 15, contrary to Section 285. He abandoned the first and based his Brief on the second 'incompetent' one. The Justices noted that the Notice of Appeal was incompetent and dismissed same with no cost.

The panel led by Justice Amina Augie ruled that the case was statute-barred having been filed outside the 14 days Constitutional period set out for Appeal.

Prince Babayemi and Senator Adeleke had locked horns in a legal battle over who was validly elected after parallel primaries were conducted in different locations of the State Capital, Osogbo.
