Osun gov vows to sustain participatory governance in Osun The Informant247

…implores supporters, party members to remain calm

The former Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola said he and his party, All Progressives Congress, APC have the ground to take electoral issue to the Supreme Court over the judgement passed by the Appeal Court.

The Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Friday, March 24, 2023 confirmed the victory of Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The Court quashed the position of the Election Petition Tribunal, which had earlier ruled in favour of the immediate past Governor of the state, Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

In a statement released by the former Governor’s media aide, Ismail Omipidan said from the snippet available from the verdict, he and his party have the ground to seek further redress at the Supreme Court.

He persuaded supporters and members of the party to remain calm and not lose hope over the judgment of the Appeal Court on Friday March 24.

The statement reads in part: “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.”
