The Osun State Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has lauded the Supreme Court judgment affirming him as the authentic Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the July 16 election.
Adeleke, in a statement by his spokesperson, Rasheed Olawale, on Thursday in Osogbo, said that outcome of the case was the manifestation of the strong “hand of God” in his governorship project.
According to him, the victory is dedicated to God and the good people of the state, whose tremendous support has kept him going since the departure of my late brother.
Adeleke, describing the apex court justices as “agents of truth and justice”, said his faith in the judiciary had always been strong.
“As I noted in my statement yesterday [Wednesday], this project is divine and it has come to stay.
“Our people voted for light and we must all defend and sustain that mandate built on our five-point agenda for good governance,” Adeleke said.
He called on Governor Gboyega Oyetola to start the compilation of his handing over notes, saying, “the people’s mandate remains sacrosanct”.
Recall that Prince Dotun Babayemi, one of the PDP governorship aspirants, had challenged the recognition of Adeleke as the PDP candidate in court.
The PDP in Osun State had, on March 8, held two parallel governorship primary elections.
