The court also quashed the earlier decision of the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that nullified his election.

Recall that in January 2023, the Osun tribunal sacked Adeleke as the duly elected governor of the state.

The court also ordered INEC to issue a certificate of return to the former governor of the state, Oyetola.
