It held that the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, were not validly returned.

The Tribunal has declared as illegal the September 27, 2018 supplementary governorship election held in seven polling units as illegal.

The Peoples Democratic Party and its governorship candidate, Ademola Adeleke, in the election had filed the petition urging the tribunal to declare that Adeleke polled the highest lawful votes and be declared the winner.
