Breaking News: Appeal Court Nullifies Seyi Makinde's Victory As Oyo Governor

The election of Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo has been nullified by a Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, the state capital.

According to Daily Nigerian, the court ruled in favour of the appellant Adelabu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on all counts.

The court upturned the ruling of the election petitions tribunal that upheld Makinde’s victory.

However, the court stopped short of declaring Adelabu winner.

The court also did not order for fresh elections to be held. The development has led to varying interpretations of what really happened on social media.

While some argue that the governor has been sacked, others say no such declaration was made by court and so the governor remains in office.

But largely, majority of users are confused.
