According to the tribunal, the rerun of the election on September 27, 2018, in seven polling units was illegal.

It stated the exercise was borne out of an illegal cancellation of results in the polling units during the September 22, 2018, original poll.

The Returning Officer who declared the results cancelled, according to the tribunal, lacked the power to do it.

Reacting to the development on Twitter, some Nigerians hailed the judgment and congratulated Adeleke on his victory while others mocked the PDP candidate.
