Against the protest carried out by a group of sympathizers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the state election tribunal’s judgment, the Director General of Adeleke Campaign Organisation, Akogun Lere Oyewumi has affirmed that the judgement is God given based on truth and dispassionate interpretation of the law and the constitution.
The Director General of the Organisation made the affirmation today in a statement issued and made available to CityMirrorNews, in Osogbo.
Akogun Oyewumi declared that the court judgement restoring Senator Ademola Adeleke’s mandate is valid and lawful in law and the constitution as it flows from evidence and cross examinations throughout the duration of the hearing, noting that the group of demonstrators drumming support for Oyetola are nothing but “unsurpers who are jittery and desperate over the restoration of people’s mandate.
According to the statement, “We note with confidence in God and people that the judgement is God given based on truth and dispassionate interpretation of the law and the constitution.
We affirm that the judgement restored the will of the people as openly expressed on September 22 ,2018. The mobilisation of exploited O-Yes members to rally against a judgement that sets Osun people free from slave holders is reprehensible and a cowardly attempt to hoodwink the people.
We note that there is nothing within the judgement that is not covered by law and the constitution. The ruling to nullify the rerun, the cancellation of results of some polling units and the declaration of Ademola Adeleke as the winner are all provided for by provisions of INEC Electoral guidelines, Electoral Act, the constitution of the Federal Republic and extant judgements of various courts in the land”.
The statement added that the protest is a manifestation of desperation and panic in the midst of ultimate defeat for APC and urged members as well as supporters of the party to remain peaceful as the organisation is prepared to pursue the matter until ultimate judgment is granted them.
“The demonstration is therefore the historic last kick of a dying horse; it is a manifestation of desperation and panic in the midst of ultimate defeat. We urge our teaming supporters to remain peaceful and law abiding.Our team is prepared to pursue this matter until ultimate judgement is granted planting the people’s Governor on the seat at Abere Government House”, the statement noted.
While thanking the entire people of Osun state for their demonstration of love and support since the judgement was declared, the statement however pleads for the maintenance of peace and order by the residents of the state even in the face of provocations.
