The Supreme Court, on Thursday, affirmed the Governor-elect of Osun state, Senator Ademola Adeleke as the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the gubernatorial election that was held in the state on July 16.

Babayemi had prayed the Supreme Court to set aside the decisions of the lower courts and declare him as the PDP candidate for the July 16, 2023 governorship election in Osun State.

However, the five-member Justices of the supreme court, presided over by Justices Amina Augie held that the appeal, as filed by the appellant, was filed out of time as a pre-election matter is time-bound.

 The court added that there was nothing before the court to invoke its jurisdiction.
