Adeleke, CUPP Reject Osun Tribunal

Tribunal-sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun state, has rejected the judgement of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.  

Reacting to the verdict of the tribunal from his country home in Ede, Adeleke said the resolution of the over-voting question in favour of Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola,  was faulty.

Adeleke said he would appeal the judgement and urged his supporters to remain calm, “I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done. Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate,” Adeleke said in a statement signed by his spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, on Friday

Also, in a swift reaction, the Coalition of United Political Parties described the verdict it as a “black market purchased judgment”.

A statement issued immediately after the Tribunal’s judgment on Friday by CUPP’s Co-National Spokesperson, Comrade Mark Adebayo, said: m “We are not perturbed because justice will eventually be done on this case. The same way that fuel scarcity is biting hard across the country and motorists have to resort to the black market to buy fuel is the same way that we consider this judgment as a black market purchased judgment that we are confident will eventually be overturned by higher Courts. It is a temporary attempt to rob the Osun State people of their sovereign will and the judicial processes through its remedial mechanisms will do real justice to correct this anomalous injustice in the name of judgment.

“That it was a split decision judgment says a lot about its lack of merit. The mandate willfully given by the Osun State people to Governor Adeleke remains intact and any attempt to steal it will fail woefully.”
