Some Nigerians have urged Senator Ademola Adeleke not to celebrate his victory at the Osun state governorship election tribunal yet because there’s still the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court to conquer.
Adeleke was declared the winner of the September 2018 governorship election by an election petition tribunal, sitting in Abuja, on Friday, to the delight of family, friends, supporters and members of the People’s Democratic PDP.
However, some Nigerians have asked Adeleke to delay his celebration till he wins at the supreme court, as there are some cases of candidates(Mama Taraba, Wike, Dakuku) who won at the tribunal but lost at the supreme court. Some also gave instances of some candidates that lost at the tribunal but won at the supreme court.
Meanwhile, there are others that believe that Adeleke can win all, using the cases of Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state and Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state, that displaced sitting governors.
River state gov. Wike lost at the tribunal and appeal court but won at the Supreme Court thats why he is still gov till date. Mama Taraba won at the tribunal, bt lost at the appeal and Supreme Court. Thats why she isnt gov Today.
Appeal and supreme court waiting. Game on #osun

Adeleke/PDP Don't Celebrate Yet, Dakuku And Mama Taraba Also Won At The Tribunal and Appeal but lost at the Apex court.
So what's the celebration all about? Adeleke and the PDP should not celebrate yet until this matter gets to the Supreme Court..

Nothing to celebrate abt Tribunal Judgement 4 sum1 like me becos I am nt a novice in this regard. In 2015 we were almost consumed by ocean of joy wen Tribunal declared Mama TARABA as Winner of TARABA Guber election bt we were made to mourned endlessly in d Appeal & Supreme Court

Dakuku peterside won at tribunal but vanquished at the supreme level, Mama Taraba conquered at tribunal level but vanquished at supreme court. Well I am just stating the odds.

For those who are citing Mama Taraba's &Dakuku Peterside's cases, be reminded that Mimiko(Ondo), Aregbesola(Osun), Oshiomole (Edo) unseated the sitting governor…
So Adeleke can end up as Osun State governor, after the tribunal's decision is upheld at the appeal& Supreme Court pic.twitter.com/Uy0kWfK7U9

#Osun The tribunal is not the final arbiter, the case will tested at the appeal court and the Supreme Court. Dakuku Peterside won at the Tribunal and the appeal court but Wike won at the Supreme Court. Mama Taraba won at the tribunal but lost out at the appeal court..
