Oyetola vs Adeleke: Fani-Kayode, other Nigerians react to Supreme Court judgement

Today’s Supreme Court judgement which laid to rest the legal tussle over the September 2018 Osun state governorship election between the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ademola Adeleke and Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians on social media.

WuzupNaija reports that INEC had declared Oyetola winner of the September 2018 election after a supplementary poll five days after the main election.

Oyetola’s election was however upturned by the Osun state election petition tribunal which declared Adeleke as the winner. The governor appealed the tribunal’s judgement and his prayers were granted when the Court of Appeal nullified the March 22 judgement of the tribunal.

The Supreme Court in a split judgement on Friday upheld Oyetola’s election as Osun governor.

Some Nigerians have, however, taken to social media to react to the judgement.

Prominent among Nigerians who have aired their views on the judgement is a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

Fani-Kayode in his reaction on Twitter described the judgement as a robbery.

He tweeted:

“I am not surprised by Oyetola’s so-called “victory” at the Supreme Court. Adeleke was robbed. Nigeria is finished.”
