A chieftain of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi, has expressed reservations on the apex court verdict on the governorship election in the state saying the party will overcome.
Ogunbiyi, who is the founder of “Idera de Foundation,” in a press statement he signed in Osogbo said he was shocked about the judgement.
He wondered why technicalities prevailed in the decision of the Supreme Court on an election which, according to him, was obviously won by the PDP and her flag bearer, Senator Ademola Adeleke.
He called on the party faithful and peace-loving citizens of Osun State not to lose hope and remain steadfast, adding that the only true judgement is that of God Almighty.
He affirmed that the PDP has not lost the support of the majority of Osun people and asserted as well that the party would overcome like a rising sun and bounces back stronger.
Ogunbiyi also reiterated his commitment to the ideas of the party and her zeal to deliver dividends of democracy to the teeming population of Osun who yearns for compassionate leadership with humanistic ideas.
He appreciated the good people of Osun for standing with the party and eulogised the leadership of the party under Hon Soji Adagunodo for its effective coordination in paddling affairs of the party this far.
Ogunbiyi then congratulated governor Gboyega Oyetola and charged him to use the opportunity for the betterment of the state by providing quality leadership.
He emphasised that as opposition, “we will be on the trails of the government.”
The PDP chieftain also admonished members of the PDP across the state to continue to strive until the state gets to her desired height. “Osun State will surely experience prosperity, it is just a matter of time, ” he added.
