Oyetola has re-acted to the ruling which upheld the election of Adeleke as Governor

Former Osun Governor, Gboyega Oyetola has re-acted to the ruling of the Supreme Court which upheld the election of Senator Ademola Adeleke as Governor of Osun State.

In a statement he personally signed, Oyetola said although the verdict of the Apex Court was against the wish of his party’s members and supporters, he accepted it in the interest of peace and development of the State.

He said: “We strongly believe we presented a good case before the Supreme Court but the Court thought otherwise and has given its verdict. While the outcome is against our wish and that of our party members and supporters, we are all bound to accept it as law-abiding citizens.

“To our members and supporters across the State, I urge you all to accept the verdict of the Court and move on. The present situation is a win-win for us. It’s both a loss and victory rolled into one. While we lost Osun technically, we gained Nigeria.”

Oyetola added: “I remain committed to the growth and development of Osun. I will therefore continue to work with well-meaning citizens of Osun, associations and institutions to facilitate development to our dear State.
