Adeleke, will retrieve the stolen governorship mandate at the Supreme
A statement signed by kola ologbondiyan said “The party says it is not
in any way shaken by the judgment of the Court of Appeal but stands
with Nigerians in the confidence that justice and respect for the will
of the people of Osun state will definitely prevail at the Supreme
“The party insists that there is no way the will of the people, which
they openly expressed in voting for Senator Adeleke will be allowed to
“The PDP notes that the fact the Court of Appeal had a split judgment
indicates that justice was not fully served at the appellate court.
“It is instructive to state that the Court of Appeal did not contest
or invalidate the fact that Senator Adeleke won the election but only
cited technicalities and speculations to arrive at its decision.
“The PDP has also noted that the Court of Appeal failed to act on the
full and substantial import of the failure of the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) to produce the ballot papers and record of
accreditation to disprove our position that INEC altered results and
subverted the will of the people of Osun State.
“Our party and candidate are therefore confident that the Supreme
Court will look at the merit of the matter and ensure that justice is
served by recognizing Senator Ademola Adeleke as Osun State Governor.”
