APC says tribunal verdict on Oyetola is victory for democracy
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the decision by the election tribunal to declare Adegboyega Oyetola victorious in the Osun State governorship poll as a victory for democracy and the rule of law.
APC in a statement by its national publicity secretary noted that the verdict remains a categorical affirmation of the will of the Osun electorate as expressed at the polls.
The party noted: “The peaceful conduct of the Osun governorship election and effective recourse procedures are eloquent testaments to our Party’s commitment to bequeathing a legacy of credible elections, and independent and fair dispensation of electoral justice.
“The Tribunal’s findings and verdict on the pivotal question of over-voting yet again underscores the massive significance of the programme of electoral reform and new and efficient technologies implemented by the APC administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
