Osun state governor, Ademola Adeleke, has reacted to the supreme court verdict sealing his victory as Osun state governor, OduNews reports.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck out an appeal by former Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), challenging Adeleke’s victory in the July 16 2022 Osun governorship election. He claimed there was overvoting.
But a five-man panel of justices dismissed Oyetola’s appeal, saying it lacked merit, and upheld Adeleke’s win at the Appeal Court.
Minutes after the verdict, the Governor who contested under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) thanked the people for their support.
“I describe this victory as one dedicated to the Almighty God and the people of Osun,” he said. “They stood by me to let me know that they love me and I love them back.”
