Tribunal Judgement: Adeleke Rejects Verdict – Heads to Appeal Court

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State, Southwest Nigeria, has rejected the judgement of the governorship tribunal that sacked him as the governor of the state.

Gatekeepers News reports that Adeleke who described the judgement of the governorship tribunal as “a miscarriage of justice”, vowed to challenge the ruling at the Court of Appeal.

Governor Adeleke, while reacting to the verdict of the Tribunal from his country home, Ede, faulted the resolution of the over-voting question in favour of Adegboyega Oyetola, calling it “an unfair interpretation against the will of majority of voters”

The Governor in a statement signed by his spokesman, Olawale Rasheed urged his supporters to remain calm and vowed to appeal the judgement at the Court of Appeal, insisting he remains the rightful winner of the July 16 election.

Adeleke said, “I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done. Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate.”
