Prof. Kolapo Olusola, the former Ekiti Deputy Governor and Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in July 14 governorship election in the state has said that he will soon reclaim his mandate at the tribunal.
Having lost to Fayemi at the tribunal, Olusola is currently at the Appeal Court seeking to be declared governor.
He said “The stolen mandate of September 22 in Osun has been recovered and the victory of election riggers have turned pyhrric. “One of the two legs supporting election rigging in Nigeria, which is contrived inconclusive and supplementary elections has been crippled.
Hopefully, Our(PDP) Stolen Mandate shall be retrieved in Ekiti State. pic.twitter.com/pulvkWAzJj

“The other obnoxious leg, which is militarization of our elections to give the ruling APC advantage over the opposition as was witnessed in the July 14, 2018, governorship election in Ekiti, will also by God’s grace be crippled in due cours “Ekiti and Osun governorship elections were dress rehearsals for the unprecedented election rigging, vote buying and violence witnessed all over the country in the ongoing general elections.”
Olusola added that PDP in Ekiti would, by the grace of God retrieve its mandate allegedly stolen by the All Progressives Congress very soon.
“Today it is Osun doing poetic justice to impostors and election riggers; tomorrow it will be the turn of Ekiti people to reclaim their own stolen mandate and have the last and best laugh. Who laughs last, laughs best,” he said.
