The election tribunal judgment had earlier ruled in favour of Senator Ademola Adeleke winner.
Oyetola, his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had filed substantive appeals, seeking the setting aside of the decision of the tribunal. Adeleke had also filed a cross-appeal, challenging a portion of the decision.
Reports gathered that the lead judgement was read by Justice Jummai Hannatu Sankey.
There was also a dissenting judgement from one of the judges on the panel, but majority favoured Oyetola.
More reactions from Senator Adeleke coming shortly.
