A Federal High Court in Osogbo, Osun State, on Friday, nullified the last October 15 local government elections conducted by the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC).
Newsbreak.ng reports that Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel, in his judgment, said the election was held in contravention of Sections 29 and 32 of the Electoral Act, 2022.
He sacked all the chairmen and councillors elected into the local governments across the state.
Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had approached the court asking it to stop OSIEC from going ahead with the planned polls.
Other respondents in the matter included the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and its then chairman, Adeboyega Famoodun.
