We will stand by you, Atiku tells Adeleke


A former vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has assured the party’s candidate in last year’s Osun State governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who lost in his bid to unseat Governor Gboyega Oyetola, at the Supreme Court, yesterday, that the party and himself will stand with him in good times and in difficult days.

Abubakar, in a statement, said: “The Supreme Court has ruled and because of its judicial finality, the legal case is over. However, the love, acceptance and endorsement that the people of Osun bestowed on both Adeleke and the PDP are not over and cannot be overlooked.

“Those who think this is the end of the road for Adeleke and PDP in Osun are greatly mistaken. This is not the end; not even the beginning of the end. Today marks the continued ascendancy of Adeleke and his party in the hearts and minds of his people. “They had expected that the progress and development that the Adeleke family had consistently brought to Osun will be translated to their governance. That hope is not dead; it is only delayed.

“I extend my right hand of brotherhood to Adeleke in all his future endeavours and I assure the people of Osun that the PDP remembers their love and acceptance and will never forget to stand by them, no matter the situation.“I urge the nation’s judiciary to take a pulse of the nation and reflect it. In their hands, God has placed a great responsibility – the duty to ensure that justice is done – irrespective of the pressure to do otherwise by the powers that be.”
