Adeleke: Oyetola Speaks On Osun Election Tribunal Verdict




Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State has vowed to challenge the ruling of the State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal at the Appeal Court.

Naija News recalls that the tribunal had on Friday sacked him and declared Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the last governorship election in the state.

In a statement by Wole Oyebamiji, Secretary to the State Government of Osun, Oyetola said the judgment of the election tribunal had been put on appeal.

The governor also disclosed that law enforcement agencies had been instructed to maintain law and order across the state.

The statement reads, “The Government of the State of Osun wishes to appreciate the teeming support of the majority of the people in all things essential for mutual progress.

“As it is, the administration of His Excellency, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, Governor, State of Osun wishes to assure the people that the judgment of the Election Tribunal has been put on appeal.

“This is to further assure all the residents of the State of adequate security of lives and properties, as the Government of the State is still the only legitimate Government having the authority to govern the State.”

“We assure all our people that justice will prevail at last, and the law enforcement agencies have been instructed to maintain law and order across the State.

“We, therefore, urge all the residents of the State to go about their lawful duties without any hindrance.”
