As the legal battle for Osun state governorship intensifies between Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Legit.ng conducted an online poll to measures people's choice on who will win at the Supreme Court.
On facebook, out of almost 2,000 respondents, a whopping 64% believed Adeleke of the PDP would eventually win the Osun state mandate at the Supreme Court.
On the other other hand, 37% were in favour of Governor Oyetola of the APC. They believe he would retain the governorship seat.
On twitter, the PDP candidate was also the people's choice as 57% were of the belief he will secure victory to upturn the appeal court's decision, while 43% voted in favour of the APC candidates.
Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja ruled in favour of Osun state governor, Oyetola, in the Osun 2018 governorship election case.
The election tribunal judgment had earlier ruled in favour of Senator Adeleke, declaring him winner.
Oyetola, his party, APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had filed substantive appeals, seeking the setting aside of the decision of the tribunal.
Legit.ng also earlier reported that Adeleke said he had instructed his counsels to challenge the Court of Appeal judgement which upheld Governor Oyetola’s election at the Supreme Court.

Adeleke, in a statement made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Thursday, May 9, said he received the appeal court judgement with dissatisfaction.
“I received with dissatisfaction the judgement of the Court of Appeal on the ruling of the election petition tribunal which had duly returned me as the validly elected governor of Osun state.
“I have subsequently instructed my counsel to prepare for an appeal against today’s judgement at the Supreme Court immediately. Today’s judgement relied on weak technical foundation," he said.
