Sen. Ademola Adeleke, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the September 2018 governorship election in Osun, on Friday congratulated Gov. Gboyega Oyetola on his victory at the Supreme Court.
Adeleke, in a congratulatory message issued in Osogbo by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, said his ambition was never a do-or-die affair.
The Supreme Court in a split judgment of five to two on Friday upheld the election of Oyetola.
Adeleke said since the Supreme Court was the apex court in the land, its decision, regardless of his disagreement and disappointment with it, remains final.
“As a democrat and law abiding citizen, I accept the ruling no matter my misgivings.
“I wish Governor Oyetola well in the governance of Osun State, ” Adeleke said.
“Our ambition was never a do-or die-affair.
” We aspired to serve and deliver democratic dividends to the people of Osun State.
“Our ambition was altruistic. We wish Governor Oyetola the best in governance of the state,” Adeleke said.
