TalkGlitz Media reported on Tuesday that a five-member panel of the apex court held that a court of appeal correctly reinstated Adeleke as governor.

Delivering judgment in the appeal by Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Emmanuel Agim, who read the lead judgment, said the appellant and his party failed to tender relevant materials such as the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) from the 744 polling units in the state, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) voters’ register or form EC8A showing the number of votes cast at each unit.

The supreme court held that Adeleke was the duly elected governor of Osun.

Reacting to the declaration in a chat with reporters in Ede, Osun state, Adeleke said his victory emphasized that “the will of the people ordained by God survives the anti-masses plot of powerful forces”.

He thanked the residents of the state for their support and promised to be “a truly pro-people governor”.

“Today is the day our God ordained to stand his authority as the owner and giver of power,” he said.

“Today is that moment when the will of the people ordained by God survived the anti-masses plot of powerful forces. We, therefore celebrate God almighty. We dedicate today’s victory to Him. State power is of God and he bestowed it on whoever he wishes.

“I will remain God’s driven, divinely inspired, I will govern with the fear of God. Our governorship is an affirmation that we are for the people, by the people,” he promised.

Commending the court and the judges who judged the case in his favor, he said, “Integrity of my lord justice, your affirmation for the truth and people’s will, consolidate and strengthen our democracy. On behalf of the Osun people, we appreciate you and adore your love for justice and equity. Challenge, a call to duty, a fresh demand for more dividends of democracy”.

He continued, “I commit myself to more expanded delivery of good governance, in me, you will find a true pro-people governor. I seek the support of all Osun residents and citizens, in respective of party affiliations. This is our state and we must join hands to develop it.

“My appreciation goes to my family. My wives, Titi and Ngozi, and children. To all Imole in Nigeria and abroad. Thank you for standing by me. I want to thank my brother and sister.

“My people of Osun State, the good job continues, we wrap up the implementation of our five points agenda. We shall focus on grassroots development. We shall embark on the agricultural revival of our dear state.

“Our policies shall fight poverty, insecurity, unemployment, and underdevelopment. You shall truthfully feel and enjoy the dividend of democracy.”
