Adeleke Calls Tribunal Ruling As “Miscarriage of Justice”, Heads For Appeal

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has vowed to appeal the judgment sacking him as governor of Osun state.

Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was declared winner of the governorship poll held on July 16.

In August 2022, Gboyega Oyetola, former Osun governor, and the All Progressives Congress (APC) petitioned the tribunal to challenge the victory of Adeleke.

Delivering judgment on Friday, two out of the three-member panel of the tribunal held that the petitioner was able to prove that there was indeed over-voting in some of the polling units.

Consequently, the majority judgment of the tribunal ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and issue a fresh one to Oyetola as the duly elected governor of Osun.

Adeleke, in his reaction, described the judgement as “a miscarriage of justice” adding that it is “an unfair interpretation against the will of majority of voters”.

“I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done,” he added.

“Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate.”

In Ebonyi, Atiku Pledges Restructuring, Taunts APC’S “Collapsing Alliance”

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has restated his commitment to restructuring if elected president.

Abubakar spoke on Thursday during the PDP presidential campaign rally in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi capital.

He said if elected, restructuring will be the major policy of his administration, adding that the south-east will be able to attend to local issues through his “power transfer” policy.

“I am committed to power devolution and restructuring. All the south-eastern states have been yearning and have been propagating for restructuring of this country because they want to have more powers, more resources to deal with their own local affairs,” he said.

“We agree entirely and that is why it is a major policy of our government to be, if you support us and if you give us the opportunity.”

“APC had promised the same. Did they do it? They abandoned the issue of restructuring. They are a very deceitful alliance; very deceitful.

“We are committed and we mean what we say and if you give us the support, we will deliver.

“They said some people formed a party. It is not a party; it is an alliance and the alliance is collapsing and it has collapsed.”
