Osun: PDP expresses shock over Supreme Court verdict


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock over the Supreme Court judgement which validated the election of Governor Isiaka Oyetola of Osun State.
The party disclosed this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Friday in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said the fact that the Supreme Court had a split judgement “speaks volumes” on the verdict in the matter.
“Our study of the judgement, 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 the court based its verdict on reservations over issues of technicalities arising at the election petitions tribunal.
“Nevertheless, our party stands with overwhelming majority of Nigerians on that undeniable fact that the people of Osun State, by the votes cast at the poll, preferred Adeleke as their governor,” he said.
Ologbondiyan said that as a law-abiding party, the PDP urges the people of Osun state to remain united.
