APC, Oyetola Vow To Approach Supreme Court Over Osun Governorship Election
Former Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has revealed that he and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, have grounds to appeal the Appeal Court's decision to the Supreme Court.
In response to the Appeal Court decision, which overturned the tribunal's decision that initially sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke, Oyetola stated that his faith in the judiciary remained unshaken.
Oyetola in a statement issued by his media aide, Ismail Omipidan said from the snippet available from the judgement, there were solid grounds to seek further redress at the Apex Court.
He urged APC members and supporters not to be discouraged by the outcome of Friday's appeal, saying his unwavering faith in God to reclaim his mandate remained unshaken.
The statement partly reads; We have heard the judgement of the Appeal Court, but we are yet to receive a copy of the judgement.
However, from the snippets we are getting, we believe we have a potential ground to approach the Supreme Court. Our belief in the judiciary remains unshaken, just as my abiding faith in the Gods promise regarding the reclaim of my mandate remains undoubted.
I, therefore, appeal to our supporters and party members to remain calm as we take the next step.
SaharaReporters had earlier reported that reacting to the Appeal Court decision, the state Governor, Ademola Adeleke, described it as no victor, no vanquished.
Speaking shortly after the verdict at his Ede country home, the governor stated that Osun belonged to everyone, regardless of political or religious affiliation.
He urged members of the opposition party to work with his administration to move the state forward.
