On Tuesday, the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, issued a statement through his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, in Lagos, congratulating Gov. Ademola Adeleke of Osun State on his victory at the Supreme Court.
Tinubu urged Adeleke to quickly work towards uniting Osun and called for all parties to respect the judgment of the Supreme Court. He also praised the immediate-past governor of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola, for his performance during his first term.
“The apex court in the land has spoken, and all must obey its verdict.
“Oyetola discharged himself creditably in office.
“He lost the office but didn’t lose his integrity and reputation as the governor who brought efficiency, transparency and accountability to the business of governance.
“Now the matter of the July 16, 2022, Osun governorship election has been brought to a close.”
