Nigerians on social media have reacted as the Osun State election Tribunal declared Senator Ademola Adeleke winner of the September 27, 2018 governorship election in the state.
The tribunal had on Friday held that the September 27 rerun election in the state was illegal.
The three-man panel of the tribunal gave the judgement following the petition filed by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleka against the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.
The tribunal also ruled that PDP and Adeleke proved that it was the state Returning Officer, who cancelled the results in seven Polling Units, adding that the petitioners also proved that the Returning Officer has no power to cancel election results of a polling unit.
The Tribunal also agreed to deduct 2,029 votes from the APC scores and 1,246 votes from PDP votes in the 17 polling units where there was no compliance.
Reacting, Some Nigerians congratulated PDP on the victory while others said APC stands a good chance to appeal the ruling.

DAILY POST has curated some comments from Twitter about this turn of events:
@mickiebrownkie, ”Yes, the petitioner may have won the election at the Tribunal but, it’s simply the first stage. Oyetola should work harder, possibly he will win in the Appeal court. Oyetola will definitely complete his term as the Governor of the state of Osun. No Shaking!”

@thisiszwalda, ”Stolen Mandate restored at the ELECTION TRIBUNAL!”




@adebayo70534877, Congratulations to senator Ademola Adeleke for the victory at the tribunal. Congrats to the people of Osun State. Justice prevailed at last. PDP got this! I hope and pray you make this opportunity count. Let’s do things differently.”

@o_parta, ”Thank God the will of the people finally prevailed And the stolen mandate has been returned and the INEC coalition office of the state for that election should be jailed ..Now over to you ATIKU. May D god of Adeleke grant you victory as well at the tribunal.”
@EkporOjobe, ”The truth must always prevail no matter how long it takes. Congratulations to The Dancing Senator.”
@Dave_Jimm, ”It’s clear even to the blind that PDP won the election. I was never in doubt that Adeleke would win in courts- even if it gets to the Supreme Court.

@anozierich, ”By this declaration in osun state, the judiciary has come back to life.l pity those politicians riding on stolen mandates. Justice will go round.”
@DOlusegun, ”This can’t hold up in appeal court. We move.”
