Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has congratulated Gboyega Oyetola, the former governor of Osun State, on his victory at the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that on Friday in Osogbo, a three-man tribunal chaired by Justice Tetsea Kume nullified Ademola Adeleke’s election, citing overvoting as the reason for its decision.
In response to the court’s decision, Tinubu said in a congratulatory message signed by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, that light had finally triumphed over darkness.
Triumph of courage, perseverance, and light over the forces of darkness that sought to arrest the progressive good governance the APC administration delivered to the people of Osun state under the leadership of Oyetola.
I heartily rejoice with Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola on his much deserved victory at the Election Tribunal today. It is the victory of light over darkness. A triumph of perseverance, courage and justice over electoral fraud and democratic perversion.
The forces of darkness plotted to extinguish the able leadership and progressive good governance that improved the quality of life of our people under your leadership. But today, the Tribunal delivered justice and restored the mandate freely given to you and our great party.
I am confident that the good work you championed that was momentarily paused will soon resume and Osun people will be happy again.
And together we can renew their hope of a shared prosperity.
