The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, has told the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Governor Gboyega Oyetola that anti-people demonstration cannot sustain a stolen mandate.

Adeleke, who defeated APC’s Oyetola in the Osun State Election Tribunal last week, stated this through his Campaign Organisation.

A statement by the Adeleke campaign organization said, “The handful of paid demonstrators rallying against the judgement restoring the stolen mandate cannot save Gboyega Oyetola and his band of usurpers.”

This was in reaction to about 100 or so demonstrators who drummed support for Oyetola earlier in the week.

Adeleke affirmed that the court judgement restoring his mandate “is valid and lawful in law and the constitution as it flows from evidence and cross examinations throughout the duration of the hearing.”

He maintained that “the usurpers are jittery and desperate over the restoration of people’s mandate.

“We note with confidence in God and people that the judgement is God given based on truth and dispassiohate interpretation of the law and the constitution.

“We affirm that the judgement restored the will of the people as openly expressed on September 22 ,2018.The mobilisation of exploited O-Yes members to rally against a judgement that sets Osun people free from slave holders is reprehensible and a cowardly attempt to hoodwink the people.

“We note that that there is nothing within the judgement that is not covered by law and the constitution.The ruling to nullify the rerun ,the cancellation of results of some polling units and the declaration of Ademola Adleke as the winner are all provided for by provisions of INEC Electoral guidelines, Electoral Act, the constitution of the Federal Republic and extant judgements of various courts in the land.

“The demonstration is therefore the historic last kick of a dying horse; it is a manifestation of desperation and panic in the midst of ultimate defeat. We urge our teaming supporters to remain peaceful and law abiding.Our team is prepared to pursue this matter until ultimate judgement is granted planting the people’s Governor on the seat at Abere Government House,” the statement read.

The campaign organization also thanked the people of Osun state for their demonstration of love and support since the judgement was declared, even as it called for the maintenance of peace and order even in the face of provocations.

Supreme Court To Hear Adeleke, PDP Appeal On Osun Governorship Poll Today

The Supreme Court has fixed Monday (today) to hear the appeal filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 2018 governorship election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The date of the hearing was contained in notices sent to parties to the suit, which also has the PDP as plaintiff, last week by the Registry of the Supreme Court.

Adeleke and the PDP are seeking the reversal of the May 9, 2019 majority judgment of the Court of Appeal, Abuja, which upheld the election of Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress as the Governor of Osun State.

The ruling of the Court of Appeal came after the March 22, 2019 judgment of the Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which ruled by split decision to give victory to Adeleke and the PDP.

Justices Peter Obiorah and Adegboye Gbolagunte, in the majority decision, upheld the petition, voided Oyetola’s victory and declared Adeleke of the PDP winner of the poll.

Justice Ibrahim Sirajo, who chaired the tribunal, however, gave a minority judgment that dissented and struck out the petition on the grounds that the petitioners did not prove their case.

Oyetola, APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission appealed the majority judgment at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, while Adeleke and the PDP appealed the minority decision.

On May 9, 2019, the Court of Appeal gave its decisions on the appeals, with four members of the five-man panel upholding the appeals by Oyetola, APC and INEC, and dismissing the cross-appeal by Adeleke and the PDP.

The Court of Appeal’s majority judgment set aside the majority judgment of the election tribunal, upheld the result as declared by INEC and affirmed Oyetola of the APC as the winner of the election.

Justices Jummai Sankey, Abubakar Yahaya, Isaiah Akeju and Bitrus Sanga gave the majority decision, while Justice George Mbaba gave the minority judgment, in which he dismissed the appeals and upheld the cross-appeal.

The appeal to be heard by the Supreme Court on Monday is that filed by Adeleke against the majority decisions of the Court of Appeal.
