The Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended the State Governorship Election Tribunal for affirming the election of Governor Dapo Abiodun.

Naija News reports that the election of Abiodun was affirmed by the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal led by Justice Yusuf Halilu.

Justice Halilu in the ruling declared that the petitioner, Hon. Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) “did not only fail but also irredeemably failed to prove” his case against Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress(APC).

This online news platform understands Tribunal chairman held that Akinlade’s petition ” is destined to fail, it failed and is hereby dismissed.”

Reacting in a statement on Saturday by the Publicity Secretary of the Ogun APC Caretaker Committee, Tunde Oladunjoye, the APC advised opposition politicians to work with Governor Abiodun to move the state forward.

The APC said: “The detailed nature of the judgement clears all doubts and reconfirms our belief that the petition by Abdulkabir Akinlade, APM and their sponsors as mere distractions by sore losers.

“It is very commendable that the judgment of the Tribunal was relayed live on radio and television stations and streamed on the internet.

“This has exposed the lack of depth, procedurally contaminated and virus invested Petition to the whole world. In fact, it is very shameful for a candidate and party that were touting to govern an educationally advanced state like Ogun.

“Our advice is for these people to desist from their distractions and join Prince Dapo Abiodun in building the future of Ogun State together. The Governor has been running the promised all-inclusive government.

“While thanking our party leaders and members for standing steadfast, we also commend the section of the media that has remained ethical and unbiased.”
