Osun Election: Oyetola Congratulates Adeleke on victory at Supreme Court
Former Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola congratulated Senator Ademola Adeleke after the Supreme Court upheld the election of the latter as governor of the state.
On Tuesday the Supreme Court affirmed the election of Adeleke as the governor of Osun State.
The Court said Oyetola and All Progressives Congress (APC) failed to prove its case of improper accreditation of voters and over-voting against Adeleke.
A five-member panel of the apex court held that the court of appeal correctly reinstated Adeleke as governor.
The judgment is affirmed and adopted by the entire five members of the panel.
According to all the members of the panel, the appeal lacks merit.
Oyetola in a personally signed statement charged Adeleke to deliver good governance to the people of the state.
“To the Osun Governor, Senator Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke, I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your victory at the Supreme Court.
“While I pray for your tenure to be prosperous for our people and the State, I urge you to focus on the delivery of good governance.
“Whatever personal differences we have must give way to the advancement of our great State. The security of the Osun people must be guaranteed regardless of their religious and political affiliations. I pray for peace and progress in your tenure.”
Oyetola urged members of the APC to accept the verdict in good faith, positing that the party presented a good case before the Supreme Court but the Court thought otherwise.
