Osun Govt files appeal against tribunal’s verdict declaring Adeleke as governor
The Osun State Government on Thursday filed an appeal against the judgement of the state Election Petition Tribunal on the 2018 state governorship poll declaring the People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Ademola Adeleke, the winner of the election.
The state government charged the residents of the state to remain calm and go about their lawful activities following the tribunal judgment in the governorship election petition.
It reassured the people of their safety and security of properties because “the Government of the State is still the only legitimate Government having the authority to govern the State.”
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) Mr. Wole Oyebamiji, said: “The Government of the State of Osun wishes to appreciate the teeming support of the majority of the people in all things essential for mutual progress.
“As it is, the administration of His Excellency, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, Governor, State of Osun, wishes to assure the people that the judgment of the Election Tribunal has been put on appeal.
“This is to further assure all the residents of the State of adequate security of lives and properties, as the Government of the State is still the only legitimate Government having the authority to govern the State.
“We assure all our people that justice will prevail at last, and the law enforcement agencies have been instructed to maintain law and order across the State. We therefore urge all the residents of the State to go about their lawful duties without any hindrance.”
