The lawmaker representing Osun West senatorial district, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has reacted to his victory at the Osun Election Petition Tribunal.
Senator Adeleke’s reaction came shortly after the Tribunal declared him as the winner of the September 22 governorship election in Osun State.
The three-man panel of judges had declared the victory of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola as null and void and returned Senator Adeleke as the duly elected governor of the state.
The Tribunal also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Governor Oyetola and present a fresh one to Senator Adeleke.
Senator Adeleke told Channels Television that he hoped that the electoral body would comply with the orders of the court.
He said he would be ready to meet Governor Oyetola at the Court of Appeal should he appeal the judgment of the Tribunal.
While the governor rejected the judgement and vowed to challenge it at the Court of Appeal, the lawmaker took to Twitter to celebrate his victory.
