The Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Monday nullified the election of Hon. Kolapo Korede Osunsanya (KKO), who represents Ijebu Central Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Honourable Justice Wakkil Alkali Gana-led election petition tribunal cancelled elections in units in Ward 5, Unit 5 in Ijebu Ode LGA; Ward 10, Unit 3 in Odogbolu LGA and the entire Ward 8 in Ijebu North LGA in the Federal Constituency.

The tribunal in his judgement ordered that the rerun should be conducted within 90 days.
