- PDP states that Nigerian knew that the people of Osun voted massively for Adeleke.
- Urges the people of Osun state to remain united, calm and not lose hope in our democratic process.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock at the ruling of the Supreme Court on the Osun State Governorship election.
The apex ruled in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its governorship candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.
Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary in a statement on Friday in Abuja said that the fact that the Supreme Court had a split judgment also speaks volumes on its verdict in this matter.
“Our study of the judgment, however, shows that the Supreme Court did not negate the position of the PDP and millions of Nigerians that our candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke won the election, but based its verdict on reservations over issues of technicalities arising at the election petition tribunal.
“Nevertheless, our party stands with the overwhelming majority of Nigerians on that undeniable fact that the people of Osun State, by the votes cast at the poll, preferred Senator Adeleke as their governor.”
While pointing that the party remains a law-abiding one, PDP however, urged the people of Osun state to remain united, calm and not lose hope in our democratic process and the quest for a government that truly represents their wishes and aspirations.
