Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State and Candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), on Friday asked Election Petition Tribunal in Osogbo to nullify the election of Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke.
According to the governor, the election was fraught with certain irregularities.
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.
It was recalled that Adeleke was returned elected by the INEC, after defeating his closest challenger, Oyetola, and 13 other candidate, scoring a total votes of 403,371.
Oyetola scored 375,027 votes and won in 13 local government areas of the State to come second in the election.
