The South-West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed the appeal court sitting in Akure, Ondo State capital.
This followed the jugement delievered in favour of Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun State’s governorship poll, who was sued for allegedly not having an O’level certificate.
The court on Saturday declared Adeleke eligible to contest the election.
The party conveyed this in a statement issued by Ayo Fadaka, the Publicity Secretary of the party in the zone.
“This judgment has most fortunately castrated the curious verdict of the FCT High Court, Bwari,” the statement reads.
“While we await hopefully the removal of all roadblocks that the APC has installed to forestall the inauguration of Sen. Adeleke as governor of Osun State, we express our confidence in the judiciary to do the needful in ensuring that justice and fair play continuedto remain as the threshold upon which our democracy is built.
“We congratulate the people of Osun State and our party for this victory.”
