Osun State Election: Oyetola Heads To Supreme Court


Former Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola has reacted to Friday’s Appeal Court ruling.

The appeal court overturned the position of the state governorship election petition tribunal, which had earlier favoured the former governor.

Former governor Oyetola wasn’t pleased with the decision of the appellate court, and he’s issued a statement through his media aid, Mr. Ismail Omipidan on Friday and said
he and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be heading to the Supreme Court over the judgement of the appellate court to get justice.

As a beneficiary of the rulings of the judiciary, the ex-governor has so much and unwavering trust in the judicial system in Nigeria, he hopes to get everything sorted at the Apex Court.

As a result of the outcome of the Friday’s appeal, the ex-governor called on members and supporters of the APC to remain calm and keep their faith in God to reclaim their mandate. He said his unwavering belief in God to reclaim his mandate remains undimmed.

The statement partly reads; “We have heard the judgement of the Appeal Court, but we are yet to receive a copy of the judgement.

However, from the snippets we are getting, we believe we have a potential ground to approach the Supreme Court. Our belief in the judiciary remains unshaken, just as my abiding faith in the God’s promise regarding the reclaim of my mandate remains undoubted.

I, therefore, appeal to our supporters and party members to remain calm as we take the next step.”

The decision of the Appeal Court happened because the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Oyetola failed to prove their over voting case against Adeleke.

That led to the victory of Adeleke yesterday.

A decision of the Osun State Governorship tribunal was overturned by the Court of Appeal, confirming Senator Adeleke’s tenure as Governor.

The Appeal Court affirmed Adeleke as the authentic governor of Osun State.

The next step for Oyetola and the APC is to reclaim their mandate through the supreme court.
