PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku who is also challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in court tweeted;
“Truly, the judiciary is the last hope of the common man and the defender of our democracy. Congratulations Sen. Ademola Adeleke, @IsiakaAdeleke1”.
The tribunal also 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 deducted 2,029 votes from APC scores and 1,246 votes from PDP votes in 17 polling units where there was non compliance.
