JUST IN: Tinubu Reacts To Supreme Court Verdict on Osun

National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has commended the Supreme Court over Friday’s judgement affirming the victory of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State.

Tinubu said the verdict was a testimony that the judiciary was firmly on course and works in synch with the people’s aspiration.

He said in spite of the “intimidation, unnecessary accusations and rumour-mongering, the apex court lived to its billing by dispensing justice without fear or favour.”

Tinubu, in a statement he personally signed, congratulated Oyetola, urging him to be magnanimous in victory, extend his hands of fellowship to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and continue to unite the people.

According to him, with the electoral case now laid to rest, governance can now begin in full swing and the people of Osun can begin to reap the fruits of the government they voted for.

“The court did not rule based on any hearsay but acted on the basis of the merits and demerits of the case before it. The Supreme Court and the judiciary therefore deserve our commendation for it has further strengthened the democratic process.

“I congratulate Governor Oyetola for his steadfastness and for remaining calm while the electoral case lasted. I commend the government and people of Osun in allowing the rule of law to run its entire course. I urge them to continue to assist the security agencies in maintaining and sustaining the peace.

“The All Progressives Congress must be commended for standing firmly behind the governor. Also, PDP and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, have exercised and exhausted their rights as expected of them. I praise them for their doggedness,” Tinubu said.
