The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has noted that the Appeal Court’s judgment of Thursday, May 9, which re-declared Gboyega Oyetola as winner of the March 9 governorship election, has put the records straight much beyond the controversy trailing the election in the state.
Speaking shortly after the Court judgement, the Osun APC spokesman, Kunle Oyatomi, said that the victory was a testament of the Party’s popularity in the state.

He wondered how the APC could have lost the election and faulted Adeleke’s emergence as winner. “How then could we have lost the governorship election? We may not be able to explain what was behind Adeleke’s performance that he came so close in November.
“We believe it is time to move on and concentrate efforts on the transformation work that started in 2010 and which the people have mandated Gov. Gboyega Oyetola to continue and improve upon,” he said.
A five-man panel of the Appeal Court led by Justice Jummai Sankey upheld the election of Oyetola as the governor of Osun State on Thursday.
