The All Progressives Congress in the state of Osun has reacted to the verdict of an Abuja High Court which disqualified Ademola Adeleke from contesting the state governorship election of 2018.
The party, in a statement by his Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi described the verdict as a victory for the state, because Osun deserves better than an ill-educated juvenile as its governor.
According to the APC, long before independence, the state has produced intellectual giants and exceptionally brilliant businessmen and technocrats including jurists of international standard.
“We’re too civilised to have a Ademola Adeleke as governor who presented a fake statement of result of the secondary school he attended and is currently under investigation for another NECO certificate forgery allegation.
“The court judgment therefore corroborated what we have known all along that this young man is best suited for the dance floor of a discothèque rather than the intellectually high demand of running Government Secretariat at Abere.
In a statement issued by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi and made available to the media in Osogbo, the APC regretted that, ‘of all the highly qualified and intellectually solid individuals available even in the PDP, the party went for the lowest possible cadre, whose integrity is questionable but whose wealth is limitless.
“Fortunately for Osun, we can depend on Nigerian’s jurisprudence to uphold justice at the most critical point.
“We hope that the Appeal Court handling Osun governorship dispute will take judicial notice of this judgment that has practically disqualified Ademola Adeleke from the governorship position.
