We have solid ground for appeal, says Oyetola
Former Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola says there is ground for him and his party, the All Progressives Congress, to approach the Supreme Court over the judgement of the Appeal Court.
Reacting to the Appeal Court judgement which upturned the decision of the tribunal that initially sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke, Oyetola added that his belief in the judiciary remained unshaken.
Oyetola in a statement by his media aide, Ismail Omipidan, said from the information available from the judgement, there were solid ground to seek further redress at the apex court.
He appealed to members and supporters of the APC to remain calm and not to be discouraged over the outcome of the Friday’s appeal, saying his abiding faith in God to reclaim his mandate remains undoubted.
“We have heard the judgement of the Appeal Court, but we are yet to receive a copy of the judgement.
“However, from the snippets we are getting, we believe we have a potential ground to approach the Supreme Court. Our belief in the judiciary remains unshaken, just as my abiding faith in the God’s promise regarding the reclaim of my mandate remains undoubted.
“I, therefore, appeal to our supporters and party members to remain calm as we take the next step,” the statement added.
