Following the report that Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola defeated Senator Ademola Adeleke at an Appeal Court, the latter’s nephew, who has been soliciting for him for a while now, has reacted to the news.
It will be recalled that earlier today, the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal upturned the decision of the Osun State Gubernatorial Election Petition Tribunal which declared Adeleke the winner of the September 2018 gubernatorial election in the state.
The Justice Jummai Sankey-led five-member panel in a majority decision of four-to-one upheld Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s appeal challenging the tribunal decision.
The court subsequently declared Oyetola the winner of the election.
But reacting via his Twitter handle shortly after the judgement, Davido said the Supreme Court would vindicate Adeleke.
He wrote: “My people. We can’t hide our disappointment this judgment of the Court of Appeal. It hurts, it’s extremely painful but guess what? It is not the end. Far from it. Everyone remain calm. I want to urge all our supporters to remain calm in this time.
“As you all know there is one last and most important lap. It is time for that last lap and the God I know and serve is in control.
“We won the first leg. We have lost the second leg but I am certain the Highest Court in the land will rectify and restore all that has been stolen from us with this judgment! Everybody stay calm and stay safe! See you on the other side.”
