With the conclusion of hearing into the appeal we filed against the judgment of the Justice Thomas Naron led Elections petition Tribunal, we shall not be stampeded into joining issues with Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola henceforth.
We, as responsible and disciplined citizens of Nigeria have resolved to make our claims before the Justice Victor Omage-led Appeal Panel without playing to the gallery.
That Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola decided to defer his mandate after the case was closed at the Appeal Court smacks of desperation and fear of the expectant Justice as opposed to arbitrariness.
We enjoin members of our great party and teaming supporters to remain calm peaceful and assured that justice will be done over the electoral heist committed against the people of Osun State on April 14, 2007.
We have absolute confidence in the judiciary that the days of technical justice which gave Governor Oyinlola Judgment at the lower tribunal are gone forever.
In this era of substantial Justice, only the guilty are scared stiff of the current wave of courageous pronouncements of the third Estate of the realm. Only those fugitives who are afraid of justice will run commentary on a case after final submissions in the court and before the verdict is delivered. To join issues with a fool at a time like this is to become a fool oneself.
We have made our case and rested same at the doorstep of Justice and we are calmly awaiting Justice with abiding faith in the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Only the fugitives of the law will do what Governor Oyinlola has done by attempting to usurp the roles of the judiciary.
Engineer Rauf Aregbesola has presented his case in the best tradition of advocacy devoid of deceit and untruthfulness.
He is expecting justice to roll down like water and righteousness like an ever flowing stream.
The probative value of evidential justice should be allowed to wheel justice in an unfettered manner as we await the dawn of hope and rejuvenation in Osun State.
Aregbesola is too cultured and law-abiding to be drawn into any contemptuous commentary about the temple of justice.
