- The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun says the Supreme Court judgement affirming Gboyega Oyetola as governor has assuaged its fears
- The APC thanks the people of Osun for supporting Governor Oyetola while the legal battle was being fought
- The ruling party says it is prepared to receive errant members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who would decide to join its fold
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun on Friday, July 5, said the judgement of the Supreme Court concerning the governorship election has assuaged its fears over the future of the state.
The ruling party said it was excited over the judgement adding that God had used the highest legal authority in the country to declare Oyetola as duly elected.
Premium Times Reports that the APC’s reaction was contained in a statement from the spokesperson of Osun APC, Kunle Oyatomi.
“The progressive God that Osun people serve heard their prayers and granted their request that Gboyega Oyetola, who won last September’s governorship election, should be so confirmed by the Supreme Court.
“God has used the highest legal authority of the Land to proclaim the truth that Oyetola lawfully won. And that is historic!
“Our fears for the calamity that might have befallen the state of Osun, if the PDP had been declared winner, have now been assuaged,” the statement said.
The APC further stated that those who had wished for a different outcome from the Supreme Court have a lesson to learn with the judgement, adding that there is a natural limit to which you can stretch evil.
“It was this limit the PDP got in their attempt to stage a miraculous upset at last September’s election.
“And subsequent efforts to spin the law at the Tribunal unravelled in the Court of Appeal and finally died at the Supreme Court today,” the statement added while noting that the details are now history even though it noted that it is not simply a victory for the party alone, but for the people of the state of Osun.
“God also stopped the evil in its track that had planned to dismantle the hard earned human, social, economic, environmental and structural developments that Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola and his team established in the state of Osun.
“The thought of it was devilish in the first instance, but even more despicable was the arrogance with which the PDP went about town boasting that it would destroy everything that Aregbesola did in the state,” the party said while noting that the statement was not to mock the opposition, but to tell them that it is time to move on.
The party said it would ‘welcome any errant but repentant PDP politicians’ into its fold.
