APC has expressed delight with the majority judgment (4 to1) of the Court of Appeal which confirmed the victory of Adegboyega Oyetola as the duly elected governor of the state of Osun.
In a statement circulated and signed by the party’s director of publicity, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi, the APC said that, “this judgement has put the records straight much beyond the controversy over last November’s governorship election.
“There has been a lot of expectations and anxiety on both sides until this morning when the judgment was given in favour of the APC.
“As far as we are concerned”, the APC continued, “we have no doubt about the fact that we are the majority party in the state of Osun and the facts on the ground tell the story eloquently;
“Few months after the erstwhile disputed governorship election, the National Assembly votes took place.
“APC won two of the three Senate seats; Six of the Nine Reps seats; and 23 of the 26 House of Assembly seats!!
“How then could we have lost the governorship election? We may not be able to explain what was behind Adeleke’s performance that he came so close in November.
“Although we won, Adeleke’s score sheet was inexplicably abnormal. In contrast to the election four months after, the opposition’s so-called victory would have been a farce.
” We believe it is time to move on and concentrate efforts on the transformation work that started in 2010 and which the people have mandated Gov. Gboyega Oyetola to continue and improve upon.
“That’s a job the new governor and the APC are determined to accomplish by the special grace of Allah”, the APC said.
