Nigerian singer, Davido has reacted to the Court of Appeal ruling which nullified his Uncle Senator Ademola Adeleke’s victory at the Osun State governorship polls.
The Court of Appeal which sat today nullified the judgment given by a Tribunal few weeks ago which declared that Senator Ademola Adeleke won the election. The court proceeded to declare Governor Gboyega Oyetola winner of the election.
The judgment which was delivered by Justice Hannatu Sankey set aside the entire proceedings of the Tribunal because of its “faulty composition”. The judgment was upheld by four justices of the five-man panel.
In reaction, Davido shared the below message urging their supporters to stay calm as he declared that the judgment would be challenged at the Supreme Court.
The Osun PDP party chairman Soji Adagunodo has vowed that the party will head to the Supreme Court to challenge the Appeal Court ruling which declared Governor Gboyega Oyetola winner of the 2018 Osun governorship election.
“Technicality was what Wole Olanipekun laid before the court. There was no argument about the decision of the Tribunal that gave us victory. We will upturn the judgement at the Supreme Court. It is democracy at play. We will study the Appeal Court judgment appropriately and challenge it at the supreme court”
