The Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal has declared the September 27 rerun election in the state illegal.

The three-man panel of the Tribunal gave the judgement on Friday following the petition filed by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleka against the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.

The Tribunal also ruled that PDP and Adeleke proved that it was the state Returning Officer, who cancelled the results in seven Polling Units, adding that the petitioners also proved that the Returning Officer has no power to cancel election results of a polling unit.

The Tribunal also agreed to deduct 2,029 votes from the APC scores and 1,246 votes from PDP votes in the 17 polling units where there was non-compliance.
