Osun Tribunal Verdict: Why APC Will Lose Presidency – Fayose




The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has declared that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will the presidency.

He made this known on Friday when congratulating Senator Ademola Adeleke over his victory at the Osun Governorship election petition tribunal.

Naija News had reported that the tribunal stated that the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, were not validly returned

It also declared the rerun Osun governorship election on September 27, 2018, in seven polling units was illegal.

The tribunal ruled that the exercise was borne out of an illegal cancellation of results in the polling units during the September 22, 2018, original poll.

It added that the Returning Officers who declared the results cancelled, lacked the power to do it.

Reacting in a post on Twitter, Fayose wrote: “Congratulations, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, Governor-Elect of Osun State.

“Ultimately, Nigeria and its people will be victorious over this tyranny.

“They took Ekiti and Osun States by any which way just to avoid the bandwagon effect on the Presidential election.

“Now Osun has slipped off their hands.

“By the power of God, Ekiti too will slip and they will ultimately lose the Presidency.”
