The Supreme Court has upheld the August 2014 election victory of Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola.

The apex court also dismissed the appeal filed by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore challenging Aregbesola’s victory.

A seven-man panel of the court, led by Justice John Fabiyi, held that Aregbesola was duly elected and was not found guilty of any election malpractice.

The Supreme Court therefore upheld the rulings of the Court of Appeal in Akure and the Osun State Election Tribunal, which had both acknowledged Aregbesola as the winner of the election.
