Adeleke Rejects Tribunal Verdict, Says ‘it is a Miscarriage of Justice,’ Heads to Appeal Court

The Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has described the judgement of the governorship tribunal as ” a miscarriage of justice”, vowing to challenge the ruling at the Court of Appeal.

Adeleke, who reacted to the verdict of the Tribunal from his country home, Ede on Friday, faulted the resolution of the over-voting question in favour of Mr Oyetola, calling it “an unfair interpretation against the will of majority of voters.”

The governor while urging his supporters to remain calm, vowed to appeal the judgement at the Court of Appeal, insisting he remains the rightful winner of the July 16 election.

“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”, Governor Adeleke declared.
