The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has congratulated Mr. Gboyega Isiaka Oyetola, over his victory at the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal, which pronounced him the winner of the Osun State gubernatorial election held last year.
The Tribunal sitting in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, had on Friday, set aside the electoral victory of Governor Ademola Adeleke, citing over voting.
The Tribunal equally declared Oyetola as duly elected in the governorship poll.
Governor Abiodun in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, described the victory of Oyetola at the election tribunal as a well deserved one and true democracy at work.
He lauded Oyetola for his resilience and strong belief in the judiciary, which eventually vindicated his claims of irregularities during the election.
The governor, while hailing the Tribunal for doing a thorough job and ensuring the restoration of Oyetola’s mandate, said the judgement has once again reinforced the belief that the judiciary is the last hope of the people.
