Court nullifies Osun LG polls

Nov 25, 2022

All Local Government Chairman and Councillors elected on October 15 during the local government elections conducted by Osun State Independent Electoral Commission, have been sacked by a Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State capital. 

 

PDP had approached the court, asking it to stop OSIEC from going ahead with the planned polls.

 

Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel who delivered the judgement on Friday, November 25, ruled that the election conducted by OSIEC contravened Sections 29 and 32 of the Electoral Act, 2022.

 

He said; 

 

?The election held on 15 October 2022 is hereby declared unconstitutional, invalid, null and void. All persons or individuals occupying that offices are sacked.?
