He said: “The Lord Justices of the Court of Appeal have served justice this afternoon by restoring Governor Ademola Adeleke as the duly elected Gov of Osun State.

“The judgement also saved the country from brink of collapse and avoidable crisis. It is a testament to the fact that truth cannot be hidden and it is constant”

“We would have called for the disbandment of INEC should the ruling of the Tribunal stand because it was a clear assault on

“President Buhari and the National Assembly’s achievements on electoral reforms. In fact, the whole achievements would have gone down the drain.

“Truly the Judiciary remains the hope of the masses. I congratulate Governor Ademola Adeleke on this occasion the entire members of PDP and Osun people as a whole”.

Oke asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun to accept the verdict of the court of appeal in good faith.

“In any electoral contest in a democracy, you win some you lose some. Political campaigns and electoral contests have come and gone. It’s time to settle down for governance”, the lawmaker said.
