Members of a popular sociopolitical organisation in Osun state, Asiwaju Grassroots Foundation (AGF) have embarked on fasting and prayer to ensure a favourable judgement by the supreme Court on PDP’s Ademola Adeleke’ appeal against Adegboyega Oyetola’s victory at the Appeal Court.
The court of Appeal had on May 9 upturned the judgement of the Election Petition Tribunal which had earlier declared Senator Adeleke winner of the governorship election conducted last year.
However, the Supreme Court had in its last sitting informed both parties to the case that it would give judgement on Adeleke’s appeal against Oyetola of the APC on Friday July 5.
A statement by the State Coordinator of the AGF, Comrade Sikiru Tijani, directed members of the group to fast and pray on Tuesday ahead of the ruling.
Sources told our Correspondent that APC group on Tuesday commenced a three-day fasting and prayer for divine intervention in the judgement.
Speaking with our Correspondent Tijani said the group believed in the efficacy of prayer and fasting.
The Osun AGF Coordinator said , “we have directed our members to commence a three-day-fasting, and would have a prayer session on Thursday to seek the face of God for a favourable judgement on the case.
“This prayer became imperative because we cannot afford to take the state which has been experiencing a monumental development in the last eight years back to abject poverty and penury.
“Our prayer will surely be answered because God is not unjust. We believe in the efficacy of prayer. Since we are on the right side of justice, victory is guaranteed.
“We believe so much in our party and we are very optimistic that the judgement will favour us.
“The people of Osun have spoken through their votes, they turned out massively during the election to elect Oyetola. So there is no cause for alarm.”
