Tribunal Nullifies Election Of PDP Lawmaker In Osun

The election of Bamidele Salam, the lawmaker representing Ede federal constituency, in the House of Representatives, has been nullified by the election petition tribunal in Osogbo, Osun state.  

The tribunal nullified the election of Salam, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the grounds of electoral malpractices.

It cancelled results from certain units in four local government areas in the constituency and ordered a rerun election  in those areas.

The panel also declared the state assembly election in Obokun state constituency inconclusive, removing Adewumi Adeyemi, a member of the PDP, was declared winner of the election.

It also ordered a rerun election in four units where the exercise was cancelled. But it upheld the election of Mulikat Abiola, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as member representing Ifelodun state constituency.
