Adeleke’s Victory: APC Says They Are Heading To Supreme Court

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has said the party would study the judgement of the Appeal Court which was delivered in favour of Peoples Democratic Party’s Ademola Adeleke.

The party also disclosed that it will proceed without delay to the next constitutional means of seeking justice at the highest court of the land.

Recall that the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja in a judgement on Friday affirmed the electoral victory of Ademola Adeleke as Governor of Osun State.

The Osun Gubernatorial Election Petition Tribunal had in January upturned Adeleke’s electoral victory and directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue Adegboyega Oyetola of APC a Certificate of Return.

In a statement on Friday, Tajudeen Lawal, the acting chairman of the party in the state enjoined all members to keep their hopes alive.

“As a law-abiding party which prioritises the rules of law, we shall pursue the issue to the Supreme Court with a view to ensuring that justice is served.

“The members and supporters of our party should not despair over the judgement as it’s a mere temporary setback which would be redressed in due course.

“The long and short of my sermon is that we shall meet Adeleke, the PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the Supreme Court,” Lawal stated.
