4.The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja Thursday declared Governor Gboyega Oyetola as the winner of last year’s gubernatorial election in Osun State. A five-member panel of the appeal court led by Justice Jummai Sankey delivered the lead judgement which favoured Governor Oyetola on the grounds that the tribunal’s ruling read by Justice Peter Obiora amounted to judicial hearsay because he did not participate fully in the proceedings of the Tribunal. The Appeal Court also said that the entire proceeding leading to tribunal’s judgement could not stand because of its “faulty composition.”

5.Sen. Ademola Adeleke, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate in the 2018 governorship election in Osun State has instructed his counsels to challenge the appeal court judgement which upheld Gov. Gboyega Oyetola’s election at the Supreme Court. Adeleke, in a statement, said he received the appeal court judgement with dissatisfaction.

The Chief of Naval Staff, ‎ Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas, confirmed the arrest of principal suspects implicated in the incident, while addressing State House correspondents at the end of a security meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

7.The Chief of Naval Staff, ‎Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas, on Thursday said the security meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari was basically meant to brief the president on the security situation after his short vacation abroad. Addressing State House correspondents at the end of the security meeting, Ibas said that the security agencies briefed him on what had been happening across the country with particular emphasis on the proliferation of small arms and what they were doing to curtail the consequences. The President has also given directives that the agencies should do more to ensure that Nigerians go to bed and wake up feeling healthy and confident that their security is guaranteed.

8.The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige has said that he and his neighbours are considering taking legal action against the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) over the blockage of their houses by the union. Ngige, who spoke with State House correspondents on Thursday said blocking his house was an infringement on his fundamental human rights and that of his household as they were all traumatised.

10.The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has disclosed that it will proceed to the Supreme Court to challenge the verdict of the Appeal Court given in favour of Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as winner of the Osun 2018 governorship election.
