The Supreme court has dismissed the appeal by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election, Senator Ademola Adeleke thereby declaring Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the Governor of Osun State.

According to reports, the Supreme Court, in a majority decision of five-to-two, read by Justice Olabode Rodes-Vivour, held that the failure of a member of the election tribunal, Justice Peter Obiora to sit on February 6, 2019, rendered the entire proceedings and the judgment was given by the tribunal a nullity.

The court upheld the majority judgment of the Court of Appeal, which led to the victory of Oyetola as the winner of the Osun governorship election.
