Supreme Court saves Osun Gov Oyetola

BY EDMOND ODOK, ABUJA – President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State on the Supreme Court judgment affirming his victory in the September 2018 gubernatorial election.

A statement by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja commended the government and people of Osun State for allowing the rule of law to run its full course in the interest of the nation’s democracy.

The statement urged the Osun people as well as security agencies to sustain the current peace within the state.

President Buhari noted that the Supreme Court has, by its ruling, not only laid to rest contention over the governorship of Osun State, but also removed all encumbrances on the path of the governor.

According to him, with the victory, Governor Oyetola can now focus fully on delivering dividends of democracy to the good people of Osun State.
