September 29, (THEWILL) – Nigeria’s apex court, the Supreme Court’s Justice, has affirmed Osun State governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke, as the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for the state governorship election held on July 16, 2022.

The court in a unanimous judgement by a five-man panel of justices, dismissed an appeal filed by Prince Dotun Babayemi, against Adeleke.

Babayemi had emerged as a governorship aspirant of the PDP, in a parallel primary election that was held by a faction of the party in the state.

His Counsel, Adebayo Adelodun (SAN), withdrew the appeal after the panel, led by Justice Amina Augie, drew his attention to the fact that the case was statute barred.
