The Quest Times reports that the Tribunal had on August 22, 2022, granted permission to Gov. Gboyega Oyetola and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to inspect materials used for the Saturday, July 16, 2022, governorship poll.
Incumbent governor Oyetola and APC are plaintiffs in the suit earlier filed, challenging the victory of Adeleke at the governorship election.
INEC had declared earlier Sen. Ademola Adeleke, governor-elect, as the winner of the Osun July 16 governorship elections, where he defeated the incumbent, Oyetola.
Oyetola, who was not satisfied with the outcome of the election, dragged both INEC and Adeleke to court through his lead counsel, Mr Yomi Aliyu.
