Governor Abiola Ajimobi:
“The judgment is not only a victory for my party, the All Progressives Congress, but also a victory for democracy and the rule of law. The road has not been smooth and it has been long but events have been encouraging and it goes to show that our faith has not been misplaced”
“Now that the people have spoken; now that the court has affirmed it and now that God has destined it, our opponents should not oppose God.
“They should rather join hands with us to move Oyo State forward. I am taking this opportunity to call on all my brothers, Senator Ladoja is my egbon (brother), that contested the election with me that we should move away from innuendoes. We must stop seeing Oyo State as a big village. We must move away from pedestrian politics and treat the state as a force to reckon with in the comity of civilized states.”
“This judgment is a good testimony that Nigerians can still be assured that it is not all cases brought before the courts against a person that the complainant wins, it a revalidation of the fact that he who goes to equity must go with clean hands. The case brought before the tribunal tested positive to frivolity and abuse of court processes, a huge distraction and attempt to hold back the hands of the clock.
By this judgement, it has been confirmed that the APC and its Governor have been washed clean of any electioneering malpractices, while the voters have equally been freed of involvement in any acts against the electoral Act,
The tribunal has affirmed clearly in the wisdom of its distinguished members that the election of senator Abiola Ajimobi is quite legitimate, having secured his victory from the popular votes of the people through a free, fair and peaceful election.
