Osun: PDP Reacts To Court Judgement On Adeleke’s Eligibility



Ademola Adeleke

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the Court of Appeal which ruled that Senator Ademola Adeleke was constitutionally qualified to contest the Osun governorship election.

In a statement on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP noted that the Appeal Court ruling has put to rest all contentions about the educational qualification of Senator Adeleke.

The main opposition party stated that the FCT High Court was wrong in nullifying Senator Adeleke’s candidacy “when the evidence before the court proved that Adeleke had met all the constitutional requirements.”

PDP said: “The Appeal Court has affirmed justice and restored the verdict of the Osun people on the eligibility of our candidate to stand for election.

“Moreover, the findings of the Appeal Court that the FCT High Court lacked powers to entertain the matter, since the issues therein are related to what transpired in Osun State, serves as a lesson to desperate politicians engaging in abuse of court processes.

“The PDP commends these Justices of the Court of Appeal for restoring the confidence reposed on the judiciary as the last hope of the common man and counseled the APC and its agents to end their unnecessary attacks on Senator Adeleke and allow the people of Osun state to enjoy their much-desired benefits of having a competent, people-oriented and purposeful leadership under Senator Adeleke.”
