PDP Reacts To Oyetola’s Victory At The Appeal Court
The chairman, Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Soji Adagunodo, has vowed that the party will challenge the Appeal Court decision on the 2018 Osun governorship election.
Recall as previously reported by Naija News, the Appeal Court in its judgement on Thursday, affirmed the election victory of Mr. Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress in the state’s governorship election.
The judgement set aside the ruling of the Tribunal which gave victory to Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party.
However, Adagunodo in a telephone conversation with Punch, said his party would challenge the Appellate Court’s ruling at the Supreme Court.
“Technicality was what Wole Olanipekun laid before the court. There was no argument about the decision of the Tribunal that gave us victory. We will upturn the judgement at the Supreme Court.
“It is democracy at play. We will study the Appeal Court judgment appropriately and challenge it at the supreme court,” Adagunodo said.
