Appeal Court Confirms Adeleke’s Qualification for Osun Guber Survey



The Court of Advance sitting in Akure, Ondo State, Saturday insisted the capability and qualification of Osun State governorship hopeful of the People groups Fair Gathering (PDP), Representative Ademola Adeleke, to hold office.

The court, directed by Equity M A Damjuma, rejected the intrigue against the judgment of Osogbo High Court which had affirmed the qualification of Adeleke to challenge for the governorship of Osun State.

The court has Judges R An Abdullahi and P.A Mahmoud as individuals from the board.

The Osogbo High Court had decided that Adeleke was met all requirements to challenge for the governorship having been taught up to auxiliary school level.

Not happy with the Osogbo High Court’s choice, the sprinters up in the gubernatorial essential race, Dr Associated Ogunbiyi, continued to the investigative court to challenge the choices.

Adeleke demanded that the investigative court ought to proclaim him the hopeful of the PDP.

Be that as it may, the Akure Advance Court in its decision rejected the intrigue on three grounds, certifying the judgment of the lower court that affirmed the qualification of Adeleke.

The principal ground was that the court has no locale to hear the case.

The second was that the supported solicitor, one Kingsley Awosiyan from Ife Focal, has no locus standi to record the case and third was that the issue was conveyed to court outside the stipulated 14 days after the lead of the governorship essential race.

The choice of the redrafting court evidently put to rest the discussion over his qualification to challenge the Osun State governorship race a year ago.

Responding to the rulling of the court, the PDP said the choice was satisfying, including that the case has no substance.

The PDP’s response was marked by the gathering’s Chief of Exposure for South West Zone, Ayo Fadaka.

“We take due cognisance of the triumph of Congressperson Ademola Adeleke at the Court of Claim, Akure on issues concerning his capability to challenge the gubernatorial decision.

“It is satisfying to take note of that the issue was settled to support him, especially as there is no substance to this red herring complemented and continued by the APC for so long.

“This judgment has most luckily mutilated the inquisitive decision of the FCT High Court, Bwari.

“While we anticipate ideally the evacuation of all barricades that the APC has introduced to thwart the introduction of Adeleke as legislative leader of Osun State, we express our trust in the legal executive to do the needful in guaranteeing that equity and reasonable play keeps on staying as the edge whereupon our majority rules system is constructed,” PDP said.

“You could all remember that the late President, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua was from Katsina State and when the ticket went back to the North in 2007, they picked President Muhammadu Buhari from Katsina. They didn’t say his state had produced President before.

“What we need in Nigeria is someone like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who knows everybody. Someone who has planted and nurtured people across all the zones. Someone, who believes in making stars to unite Nigeria,” Adeyeye said.
