The Deputy Leader, Osogbo West Local Council Development Area, Hon Moses Jasuyi, has expressed optimism that Governor Gboyega Oyetola
would defeat Senator Ademola, candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in the last Osun state gubernatorial election in the matter that awaits judgement at the Supreme court.
Jasuyi who predicted victory for Governor Oyetola at the supreme court urged the people of the state especially Olorunda West LCDA, to remain calm and hopeful, saying there was not cause for alarm.
Speaking with newsmen in Osogbo on Thursday, the local government parliamentarian who affirmed the support of his people in terms of prayers said he believed in efficiency of prayers and fasting.
He noted that going by the way the people of Osun trooped out en masses during the 2018 gubernatorial election in the state and the verdict of the Appeal Court, it has been proved beyond reasonable doubt that Governor Oyetola and APC have majority supporters in the state.
He said: “It is incumbent upon each and every one of us as patriotic citizens of the state to pray God to give Oyetola a landslide victory in the case in order to sustain the continuity of development being offered by the APC administration in the state.
“I want to urge us to remain calm, prayerful and hopeful. Let us continue to pray for Governor Oyetola till he is pronounced winner so as to be to continue to enjoy dividend of democracy in the state.
“I also want to enjoin our people to continue to support our amiable Governor in his bid to take the state to the greater heights.
“I believe it is time to move on and concentrate efforts on the transformation work that started about nine years ago and which the people have mandated Gov Gboyega Oyetola to continue and improve upon”
It would be recalled that election Petition Tribunal in its March 22 ruling declared Senator Adeleke of the PDP as the winner of the governorship election.
But the appellate court upheld the return of Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola of the APC by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the winner of the election.
However, Senator Adeleke having not satisfied with the ruling of the court of appeal proceeded to Supreme Court to appeal the verdict given by the appellate court.
In their hearing, supreme court after listening to the parties involved in the matter adjourned till July 5, for final judgment.
