Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke seems not to be perturbed by the final results of the Election Petitions Tribunal that heard the case between him and the immediate past governor, Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress.

This follows the emergence of a viral video showing the governor dancing to the viral song, "Buga" following the annulment of his victory in the July 16 Osun governorship poll.

Social media users have reacted differently to the video.

Recall that Justice Tetsea Kume, while delivering a majority decision, declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission did not comply substantially with the constitution and the provisions of the Electoral Act.

He subsequently deducted the over-voting observed from the votes scored by the candidates and declared that Oyetola won the election, having polled 314, 921, while Adeleke’s score came down to 290, 266.

He directed INEC to withdraw Adeleke’s certificate of return and issue another one to Oyetola who won a majority of the lawful votes.
