Senator Ademola Adeleke, the newly elected governor of Osun State, said on Saturday that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is wasting its time in court, calling the party’s legal effort “dead on arrival.”
Speaking at a rally in Ijebu-Jesa, Osun State, to receive Dr. Wale Bolorunduro, former commissioner for Finance in the administration of ex-governor Rauf Aregbesola, and his supporters who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, he boasted that Gboyega Oyetola and the APC will lose the case challenging his victory in the July 16 governorship election because the election was free and fair.
The incoming governor declared that his priority was how to advance the state, and he promised to make a significant difference during his first 100 days in office.
“The whole world knew that the election was free and fair. The APC is just wasting their time. They have the right to go to court but I can tell you, it is dead on arrival.
“Osun people, who have voted massively for us, should keep calm and not worry. This time around, the people of Osun State have spoken and it is the will of God.
“The only thing I’m concerned with now is how to make Osun great and I am promising that in my first 100 days in office, Osun will witness a massive change,” Adeleke concluded.
Bolorunduro told the rally that he defected to the PDP with his supporters because the party was the true progressive.
“My followers and I are defecting today (Saturday) to the PDP because it is the party for the progressives,” said Bolorunduro, who served in Aregbesola’s first term in office.
Bolorunduro also praised the PDP, saying that it is a transparent and honest party, unlike his previous party.
Recall that Adeleke won the Osun Governorship Election with a total of 403,371 votes, unseating incumbent APC governor Gboyega Oyetola.
Adeleke won 17 of the 30 local government areas in the Jul 16 governorship election.
