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.

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.”
