Former Osun Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has accepted Tuesday’s ruling of the Supreme Court which upheld the election of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor of the state.
In a statement on Tuesday, the former governor said he accepts the ruling in the interest of peace and development of the state.
Oyetola, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), also asked the party’s supporters to accept the verdict as the will of God.
“To the Osun Governor, Senator Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke, I take this opportunity to congratulate you on your victory at the Supreme Court,” Oyetola said in a personally signed statement.
“While I pray for your tenure to be prosperous for our people and the State, I urge you to focus on the delivery of good governance.”
Putting politics aside, the former governor stated that the time had come to let his successor know that the interest of the masses must be most paramount without any restriction or discrimination whether based on political persuasion, creed or religion.
“Whatever personal differences we have must give way to the advancement of our great State. The security of the Osun people must be guaranteed regardless of their religious and political affiliations.
