Osun: APC Reveals Next Line Of Action Following Adeleke’s Victory
The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the ruling of the Court of Appeal that affirmed Ademola Adeleke as the state Governor.
The appellant court on Friday nullified the ruling of the tribunal which had earlier ruled in favour of the former governor of the state, Gboyega Oyetola.
According to APC, it would study the judgement of the Appeal Court which ruled in the favour of Adeleke.
APC further stated that it will proceed without delay to the next constitutional means of seeking justice at the highest court of the land.
The acting chairman of the APC in the state, Tajudeen Lawal in a statement on Friday charged all members to keep their hopes alive.
He said, “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.”
The Osun chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a statement called on Oyetola and the Osun APC to bury the hatchet and congratulate Governor Adeleke.
The party in a statement released by its caretaker chairman, Akindele Adekunle commended the judiciary for upholding fairness and justice and restoring the people’s confidence.
Adekunle said, “We wish to commend and applaud the Lord Justice of the appellate court for upholding the tenet of justice and fairness in the Osun guber case.
“We want to urge the Osun APC and enjoin Oyetola to bury their hatchet, congratulate Governor Adeleke and join hands with the PDP government in the state to move Osun forward instead of embarking on another futile mission to the Supreme Court.”
