PDP CELEBRATES APPEAL COURT JUDGMENT ON ADELEKE

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed satisfaction with the judgment of the Appeal Court affirming Senator Ademola Adeleke as the rightful candidate of the PDP in Saturday’s Osun governorship election.

In a statement on Wednesday shortly after the Appeal Court judgement, the party said the judgement was a further validation of the will and aspiration of the people of Osun State which they overwhelmingly expressed during the election.

A rival PDP governorship aspirant, Mr. Dotun Babayemi, had challenged Adeleke’s emergence as a PDP candidate in a primary election conducted by the leadership of the PDP.

Babayemi had emerged the winner in a parallel primary election conducted by his faction and had insisted on being the rightful candidate of the party.

A lower court in Osogbo, the Osun State capital had earlier thrown out Babayemi’s case.
