Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun has officially reacted to his victory against Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the Court of Appeal.
Oyetola said his victory at the Court of Appeal is proof that there is a limit to the extent to which falsehood and propaganda can be used to suppress the truth and will of the people.
In a statement signed by Adeniyi Adeshina, his spokesperson, Oyetola said in Osogbo, Osun state that the victory had validated the mandate the people of the state freely gave to him in September 2018.
"You spoke with conviction; your voice and choice are clear to the world, and the judiciary, the last hope of the people and arbiter of the truth, has proved to the world that it is always on the side of justice.
“After months of uncertainty and waiting in judicial wilderness, truth has finally prevailed over falsehood and the voice of the majority has ultimately gained dominance over the phoney attempts to manipulate justice," he said.
The governor thanked the people of Osun for what he called their robust support and steadfastness throughout his periods of political travail and tribulation.
He said he was persuaded by their indisputable mandate and the sound judgment of the Court of Appeal that the road to ultimate victory is smooth and unshakable.
“My administration took off on a note of equitable and quality service delivery to the people of our dear state. That resolve is on course.
