The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the February 23, 2019 presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose have reacted to the judgement of Osun State governorship election Tribunal.
The Tribunal had on Friday upturned the victory of the All Progressives Congress Candidate in the election and awarded the victory to the PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke.
In reacting to the judgement, Atiku said: “Truly, the judiciary is the last hope of the common man and the defender of our democracy. Congratulations Sen. Ademola Adeleke.”
On his part, Fayose, while congratulating Adeleke, drew confident from the judgement that Ekiti State Appeal and Atiku’s own too will favour them.
“Congratulations, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, Governor Elect of Osun State.
“Ultimately, Nigeria and its people will be victorious over this tyranny.
“They took Ekiti and Osun States by any which way just to avoid the bandwagon effect on the Presidential election.
“Now Osun has slipped off their hands. By the power of God, Ekiti too will slip and they will ultimately lose the Presidency,” Fayose said.
