The Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has described the Friday’s judgement of the State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal as “a miscarriage of justice”, vowing to challenge the ruling at the Court of Appeal.
Reacting to the verdict of the Tribunal from his country home, Ede, Governor Adeleke faulted the resolution of the over-voting question in favour of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, calling it “an unfair interpretation against the will of majority of voters”.
While urging Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) memebers and supporters to remain calm, Governor Adeleke vowed to appeal the judgement at the Appellate Court, insisting that he remains the rightful winner of the July 16 governor election.
“I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done. Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate,” Governor Adeleke declared.
