Osun APC Reacts To Adeleke’s Olive Branch Request



#NigeriaDecides: Results Reaffirm Adeleke's Guber Victory As PDP Swips All Osun NASS Seats- Akindele

The state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has told Governor Ademola Adeleke not to rejoice too much over the pyrrhic victory his party at the just concluded state house of assembly election saying that doesn’t change his status as a sacked Governor by virtue of the tribunal judgment delivered in January.

Blaze Newz recalls that the Osun State governorship election petition tribunal that sat in Osogbo sacked Adeleke as the state governor with an order for the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) to instantly withdraw the certificate of return from Adeleke and give same to Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, the winner of the election.

Adeleke, however, is still clinging on to the governorship seat of the state by virtue of his pending appeal at the Court of Appeal of which the final addresses session was heard in Abuja last Monday.

25 candidates of the Osun PDP out of 26 won seats into the Osun State House of Assembly leaving a seat for APC in the just concluded March 18 election.

The house of assembly election according to Osun APC elections was characterized by maximum violence, attacks, maiming, suppression, intimidation, bullying, browbeating, bullyragging and scaring of the voters of the APC extraction by suspected thugs of PDP.

Responding to Adeleke’s olive branch request, the state Acting chairman of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, stated that it was saddening that Adeleke has either forgotten or is pretending not to know that his administration is clay-footed with so many hurdles to cross to remain as a valid governor of the state.

Lawal queried Adeleke that in what capacity was he extending his junky olive branch to the adjudged owner of the state governorship mandate and his numerous supporters?

The APC heldsman said that it was abominable for a mandate usurper to dangle a bait at the validly-affirmed owner of such a mandate.

Lawal cautioned Adeleke not to be carried away by the disputable and suspicious victory of his party in the state assembly elections’ results as they could not stand the rigorous legal hurdles at the tribunal.

In his words: “It is too early for the obviously belligerent Governor Adeleke to rejoice over the blood-and-sweat victory of the candidates of his party in yesterday’s elections across the state as the metaphorical legs of their buried dead body which the unmerited victory earned the questionable candidates of his party, majority of whom are certified Yahoo Yahoo practitioners, have been exposed.

“My party will not relent its efforts in bailing out the innocent people of the state from the throats of political vampires, buzzards, cretins and sleazebags who have invaded and raided the political sphere of the state with their phoney populist ideology and electoral commodification.

“It is despicable that an interim governor could develop such confidence and brashness to celebrate results of heavily compromised elections of the House of Assembly when his own political faith is still sagging and hanging in the balance”, Lawal stated.
