Hours after Davido’s outcry, INEC presents certificate of return to his uncle, Adeleke

Legit.ng earlier reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission had issued a certificate of return to Davido's uncle, Ademola Adeleke.

Davido has gone on its social media pages to call out the commission over its failure to issue a certificate of return 48 hours after his uncle was declared winner of the Osun guber poll.

The commission, in his reaction, said it had up to 14 days to issue the certificate but later presented it to Adeleke barely 24 hours after Davido's outcry.
