The 2023 governorship candidate of the All Progress Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Senator Teslim Folarin has hailed the judgment of the Election Petition Tribunal, affirming Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola as the valid winner of the 2022 governorship elections in Osun State.
The Election Petition Tribunal chaired by Justice Tertse Kume, on Friday, sacked Osun Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke. The majority judgment of two judges against one ordered that the Certificate of Return should be withdrawn from Adeleke and issued to Adegboyega Oyetola.
The tribunal sacked Adeleke for over-voting in some polling units across the State.
“Having deducted the over-voting figure, Oyetola scored 314,921 while Ademola gathered 290,266?” the judge said.
The three-term lawmaker in his reaction to the judgment through his media aide, Com. YSO Olaniyi, described the Tribunal judgment as a victory for justice, calling on all Osun APC members, supporters, and indeed the people of Osun State, to remain peaceful, and not react in the face of any provocation.
“The judgment is a triumph of truth and justice. Expectedly, the judiciary has lived up to expectation as the bastion of democracy and rule of law”.
“God’s Will and the mandate of the good people of Osun have finally been upheld by the Elections Tribunal. Therefore, I congratulate His Excellency Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, the APC family and the good people of Osun over the ruling” Folarin concluded.
