Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said he’ll be heading to the Supreme court to challenge the the verdict given by the Appeal Court in Abuja on Thursday,
He made this known in a statement issued in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State. The PDP candidate said he received the news of the Appeal Court judgement with dissatisfaction. He said “I’m heading to Supreme Court”
Speaking further, he added “I have subsequently instructed my counsel to prepare for an appeal against the judgement.”
Adeleke said the judgement of the Appeal Court relied on weak technical foundation. He said the substantive issue which formed the basis of the lower tribunal judgement was relegated to the background.
“We are reviewing the full ruling and action has already commenced to appeal the judgement and ensure the eventual retrieval of the stolen mandate”, Adeleke said.
