The governorship candidate of the All Progress Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Senator Teslim Folarin, has hailed the judgement of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal, affirming Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola as valid winner of July 16, 2022 governorship election in the state.
The Election Petition Tribunal chaired by Justice Tertse Kume, on Friday, sacked Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke. The majority judgement of two judges against one ordered that Certificate of Return should be withdrawn from Adeleke and issued to Oyetola.
The tribunal sacked Adeleke for overvoting in some polling units across the state.
Reacting to the judgement through his media aide, Com. YSO Olaniyi, the three term lawmaker described the judgement as a victory for justice, calling on all Osun APC members, supporters, and the people state to remain peaceful, and not to react in the face of any provocation.
“The judgement is a triumph of truth and justice. Expectedly, the judiciary has lived up to expectation as the bastion of democracy and rule of law.
“God’s will and the mandate of the good people of Osun have finally been upheld by the tribunal. Therefore, I congratulate His Excellency Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, APC family and the good people of Osun over the ruling,” Folarin said.
