Parties would be informed when the verdict is ready, according to Kekere-Ekun.

The governor was removed from office by the state election petition tribunal, which also proclaimed PDP candidate David Ombugadu the victor of the March 18, 2023 election.

By a divided vote of two to one, the tribunal presided over by Ezekiel Ajayi determined that the PDP candidate had provided evidence to support his allegation that Sule had benefited from manipulation of the poll results.
