Ogun Guber: APC hails Abiodun’s victory at Appeal Court



The All Progressives Congress (APC) Ogun State chapter, on Monday, said the victory of Governor Dapo Abiodun at the Appeal Court sitting in Ibadan, over his main challenger during the March 9, Gubernatorial election in the State was a reflection of popular mandate.





The Allied People’s Movement (APM) and its Governorship candidate in the State, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade had filed a 20 ground appeal to challenge the judgement of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
The three-member Tribunal, headed by Justice Halilu Yusuuf had dismissed Akinlade and his party’s petition, challenging the victory of  Abiodun for lack of evidence to substantiate their allegations.




The Publicity Secretary of the Caretaker Committee of the APC, Tunde Oladunjoye at a press conference held at the party’s Secretariat on Monday, emphasised the resolve of the ruling APC to reciprocate the gesture of the electorate in the state by running an all-inclusive government.




Oladunjoye said, “We give glory to Almighty God for the reaffirmation of the divine mandate given to our party and governor Dapo Abiodun, with the dismissal of the appeal filed by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).




“We see the judgement of the Appeal Court as a true reflection of the overwhelming wishes of Ogun People, freely expressed in the March 9, 2019 governorship election. The party believes that the latest judgement from the Appeal Court will put an end, the side distractions of this budding political association touting unmerited mandate.




“We wish to express our profound appreciation to the people of Ogun State, not only for the given mandate, but also for the support they have continue to give to the Dapo Abiodun-led administration. Same goes for the mass media. This unconditional support, we assure, will not be taken for granted.




“In line with the campaign promise of His Excellency the Governor, the Administration has been running and will continue to run an inclusive government. It therefore behoves politicians and non-politicians who genuinely desire the peace and progress of our dear state to join hands with our governor, who believes in politics without bitterness.”
