The Court of Appeal on Osun State election tribunal granted victory to the incumbent governor of Osun State and the APC candidate in the September 2018 gubernatorial election Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

Speaking on the matter in a statement, by his Chief Press Secretary Mr. Adeniyi Adesina, in Osogbo Oyetola said the victory had validated the mandate the people of the state freely gave to him in September 2018.

“You spoke with conviction; your voice and choice are clear to the world, and the judiciary, the last hope of the people and arbiter of the truth, has proved to the world that it is always on the side of justice.

“After months of uncertainty and waiting in judicial wilderness, truth has finally prevailed over falsehood and the voice of the majority has ultimately gained dominance over the phony attempts to manipulate justice.

“Today’s victory has proved to all and sundry that there is a limit to the extent to which falsehood and propaganda could be used to suppress the truth and the will of the people.

“I would like to thank you all, the good people of The State of Osun, for your robust support and steadfastness throughout the needless periods of political travail and tribulation.

“I am persuaded by your indisputable mandate and the sound judgment of the Court of Appeal that the road to ultimate victory is smooth and unshakable.

“My administration took off on a note of equitable and quality service delivery to the people of our dear state. That resolve is on course.
“I urge you all to be peaceful and to go about your legitimate businesses as we revel in this well-deserved victory.
“I seize this opportunity to once again ask for the cooperation of all the citizens, partners, and friends of the State of Osun as we move forward with the state’s development agenda,” Oyetola said.

Adeleke,the PDP candidate at the election was earlier declared winner by the Tribunal.
