The tribunal had on Friday held that the September 27 rerun election in the state was illegal.

The three-man panel of the Tribunal gave the judgement following the petition filed by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleka against the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.

Reacting to the ruling, Davido congratulated people of the state for the victory.
