Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has described the decision by the All Progressives Congress and Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to challenge the result of the governorship poll won by the PDP before an election petition tribunal as “a wasteful voyage and an exercise in futility.”

The state chairman of the APC, Gboyega Famoodun, had dropped hint of the party’s plan to approach tribunal over the outcome of the July 16 governorship poll while speaking with journalists in Osogbo on Thursday.

Famoodun had said lawyers have told the party that “we have a strong case and we believe we will win at the court.”

But the chairman of the PDP’s Caretaker Committee in the state, Dr Akindele Adekunle, in a statement, condemned the APC’s decision to approach tribunal, describing it “as anti-people and a challenge of God’s will.”


The statement read, “We are yet to be served with any election petition. Neither the party nor the governor-elect is worried by the alleged petition as the election that produced the winner was adjudged to be of global democratic compliance.

“This just concluded election passed the test of best practices in electoral processes with the effective application of the Electoral Act which shut down all rigging plots and scheming of the All Progressives Congress.

“PDP is not afraid of any election petition as the legal team of the PDP is always ready to defend whatever petition the APC is bringing, reiterating that the petition would be dead on arrival anytime it comes.”
