Adeleke : It Was Never A Do Or Die Affair, I Wish Oyetola Well
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun state governorship election, Ademola Adeleke, has accepted the Supreme Court ruling on the disputed gubernatorial election.
He congratulated the governor of the state Gboyega Oyetola, over his victory at the supreme court.
The supreme court had upheld the election of Oyetola , candidate of the APC, in the September governorship election.
In a statement by Olawale Rasheed, his spokesman, Adeleke said the judgement remained final, regardless of his misgivings.
He added that his ambition to be the governor of the state was never a “do-or-die affair”.
“As a democrat and law-abiding citizen, I accept the ruling no matter my misgivings,” he said.
“I wish Governor Oyetola well in the governance of Osun State. In all circumstances, we must thank God Almighty. We gallantly fought a good fight in pursuance of a democratic cause. The ideals we fought for lives on.
“Our ambition was never a do-or-die affair. We aspired to serve and deliver democratic dividends to the people of Osun state. Our ambition was altruistic. We wish Governor Oyetola the best in the governance of the state.”
