Oyetola’s tribunal victory, triumph of light over forces of darkness – Tinubu



APC Presidential Candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu says the election tribunal judgment that upturned the election of Sen. Ademola Adeleke of the PDP in favour of Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, is triumph of light over forces of darkness.

Tinubu, in a congratulatory message to Oyetola through his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman on Friday, also said the victory of Oyetola was a reward for perceverance that was well deserved.

The two-term governor of Lagos state also described the victory as a triumph of courage over forces that sought to arrest the progressive good governance the APC administration delivered to the people of Osun, under the leadership of Oyetola.

“I heartily rejoice with Oyetola on his much deserved victory at the election tribunal today.

“It is a triumph of perseverance, courage and justice over electoral fraud and democratic perversion.

“The forces of darkness plotted to extinguish the able leadership and progressive good governance that improved the quality of life of our people under your leadership.

“The tribunal delivered justice and restored the mandate freely given to you and our great party,” he said.

The APC presidential candidate, expressed confidence that the good work Oyetola championed that was momentarily paused, would soon resume and Osun people would be happy again.

“Together we can renew their hope of a shared prosperity.”

It was reported that a 3-man election tribunal, chaired by Justice Tertsea Kume on Friday, in Osogbo, ruled that Oyetola was the duly elected governor of Osun.

Kume ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue Certificate of Return to Oyetola, while declaring as null and void, the results that produced Ademola Adeleke as governor.
