People Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in the October 20, 2012 election in Ondo State, Chief Olusola Oke, has hailed the judgment of the Federal Court of Appeal, sitting in Akure, which quashed the ruling of Ondo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

He described it as another signal that Nigerian judiciary has men of impeccable character, who are determined to ensure that justice is done at all times.

Oke, in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, said the justices of the Federal Court of Appeal had shown that the judiciary was capable of regulating itself thereby saving the common man from arbitrary justice.

He had earlier approached the Appeal Court to challenge the February ruling of the Tribunal which struck out the name of PDP as a part of his Petition on account of its name being signed for by Mr. Chris Omotuyi, state Director of Organisation of the party, whom the tribunal ruled was incompetent and defective.
