The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ogun State chapter on Wednesday described the Supreme Court’s judgement that affirmed the victory of Governor Dapo Abiodun as a validation of the popular saying that “when God says yes, no man can say no”.
The party while reacting to Abiodun’s victory through a statement by its, Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye said, “the Supreme Court, which was in concurrence with the earlier judgements of the Ogun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and that of the Court of Appeal, Ibadan, was a reaffirmation that Prince Dapo Abiodun is God’s project”.
According to the party, “the needless distraction arising from day-dreaming litigations and court-shopping syndrome have been finally and permanently buried; and our Governor can now squarely face the business of governance in the execution of mandate freely given to him by the good people of Ogun State.”
“We had maintained right from the onset that Prince Dapo Abiodun’s clear victory at the election was a divine mandate and a true reflection of the choice of the good people of Ogun State.”
“We congratulate Prince Dapo Abiodun, the entire members of our party at all levels, we thank our leaders at the national level and we urge all genuine lovers of development in our dear Ogun State to join hands with the Omoluwabi Governor in taking the State to greater heights”, the party scribe affirmed.
Also reacting to Abiodun’s victory, the Ogun APC Youth League (APCYL), said the Supreme Court judgment is a further confirmation of the massive votes freely given to the Governor by the electorate.
A statement issued by the Coordinator of the League, Comrade Olamide Lawal in Abeokuta yesterday hailed the judiciary for being “unbiased, fair and reliable.”
The league observed that the verdict of the Supreme Court had not only justified the trust reposed in the Governor at Saturday, March 9 Governorship polls but had also validated the judgement of the Ibadan Appeal court verdict in November.
According to them, the verdict had finally put to rest, all issues of litigations that ought to naturally distract the Governor but which he did not allow.
“We hereby call on our Governor to see the judgement of the court as a further call to duty and compliment the tremendous achievements recorded so far.”
“It is obvious that you (Governor Abiodun) have started your first set of months with developmental projects, we however call on you not to relent in your progressive agenda and plans for the State.”
