Osun Governor-Elect Senator Ademola Adeleke has said the Supreme Court’s declaration of him as the authentic Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate has confirmed his victory is divine.
The Supreme Court dismissed Babayemi’s suit contesting Adeleke’s nomination as Osun PDP Governorship candidate.
Adeleke said his victory is divine, stressing residents of Osun have embraced light to take them to the Promiseland.
Adeleke, in a statement by his spokesperson Olawale Rasheed, said: “This project is divine and is here to stay. Our people voted for light and we must all defend and sustain that mandate built on our five-point agenda for good governance.”
In a victory statement by Osun PDP Caretaker Chairman, Dr Adekunle Akindele, the party described the Supreme Court judgement as another landmark for Osun people.
While congratulating Adeleke, the party noted that Prince Babayemi ceased to be a member of the PDP and warned against any accommodation of the expelled politician in PDP matters.
“As we are rejoicing, we must note very strongly that a mole among us who was an active agent of the APC had since lost his membership of PDP. No organ or affiliates of the party should accommodate him or his agenda again within this party.
“Any member of the party who continues to romance the expelled member risks being charged with anti-party activities and may face appropriate sanctions. We must get rid of fifth columnists by descending heavily on them. We must uproot them and cut down their branches,” the statement reads.
