The Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, has declared the local government election held on October 15, 2022 as illegal, unconstitutional, null and void.

Justice Nathaniel Emmanuel Ayoola sacked all the chairmen and councillors elected into the local governments across the state.

He held that the election conducted by the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC), was in contravention of Section 29 & 32 of the Electoral Act, 2022.

SIEC law is inconsistent with sections 29 & 32 2022 Electoral Act that provides 180 days notice “Notice of election is fundamental. Section 150(3) of the Electoral Act says any election conducted in violation of the provision of the law shall be invalid. I hold the view that the plaintiff has made a good case. He said: “The case is held in favour of the plaintiff and against the respondents.

He said: “The election held on 15 October 2022 is hereby declared unconstitutional, invalid, null and void. All persons or individuals occupying that offices are sacked.”
