The party noted that it is yet to be served with any petition, but neither it nor the governor-elect is worried about the petition because the election was adjudged to be democratic compliance.
He stressed that the country had just passed through the test of the best practices in the electoral process, which is the effective application of the electoral act that shut down every rigging plot.
Adekunle added that the party is not scared of any petition as its lawyers are always ready to defend any petition the APC is bringing.
