Adebayo Adelabu Congratulates Makinde Over Supreme Court Judgement

The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the March 9th election in Oyo State, Mr. Adebayo Adelabu has reacted to Wednesday’s Supreme Court judgment which affirmed the victory of Mr. Seyi Makinde as the Governor of Oyo State.

We recalls that the Supreme Court had on Wednesday ruled that Mr. Makinde was duly elected as the Governor of the state.

But, his major challenger, Mr. Adelabu who dragged the Governor to the Supreme court while reacting maintained that with the Supreme Court pronouncement, he strongly believes that the time has come for the state to move forward for necessary benefits of democracy.

Adelabu in a statement personally signed by him and made available to us on Thursday said, “I greet my dear great people of Oyo State. In the last few weeks since the 2019 gubernatorial election petition found itself before the supreme court, our dear state has been gripped with palpable tension.

He used the opportunity to congratulate the Governor as he wished him well.

“But now that the judgment has been given, I strongly believe that the time has come for the state to move forward in order for the necessary benefits of democracy to accrue.

“As your candidate, after the elections, we took advantage of the law as provided for by the electoral act and moved from the Tribunal through to the Appeal court and finally, the Supreme Court.

As the highest court in the land, it is the court of last resort for those looking for justice.

This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and I’m sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our dear state.

But I feel pride and gratitude for the wonderful opportunity and campaign that we built together, the vast, diverse, creative, energized campaign.
