Judgment: Wild jubilation in Ede, Adeleke’s home town; Don’t Celebrate Yet!!! Nigerians Warn Adeleke

There was wild jubilation in Ede, Osun State, the home town of Ademola Adeleke on Friday, following the tribunal judgement which upheld his election.

The tribunal which sat in Abuja had declared Mr Adeleke winner of the September 2018 governorship election in Osun.
Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), who was in the town, reports that supporters of the Peoples Democratuc Party (PDP) as well people of Ede were seen dancing and singing victory song.
At the country home of Mr Adeleke, who is currently a senator, large crowds were seen within and outside his premises singing and dancing.

Okada riders, in their large numbers, were also seen using their motorcycles to display different skills to celebrate the victory.

Speaking on the victory, Dupe Adeleke-Sanni, Adeleke’s elder sister, commended the judiciary for retrieving the “stolen mandate.”

Mrs Adeleke-Sanni, who said she dedicated the victory to God and his late brother Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, said the victory was well-deserved.

“We thank God for returning our stolen mandate.

“It is not by our might or power but by the grace of God that we have the mandate back,” she said.

She, however, commended the people of Ede for standing with the family during the trying period, urging them to continue to stand with them.

NAN reports that the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja had on Friday declared Mr Adeleke winner on a split judgement delivered by three-man Tribunal.

Some Nigerians have urged Senator Ademola Adeleke not to celebrate his victory at the Osun state governorship election tribunal yet, because there’s still the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court to conquer.

Adeleke was declared winner of the September 2018 governorship election by an election petition tribunal, sitting in Abuja, on Friday, to the delight of family, friends, supporters and members of the People’s Democratic PDP.

However, some Nigerians have asked Adeleke to delay his celebration till he wins at the supreme court, as there are some cases of candidates(Mama Taraba, Wike,Dakuku) who won at the tribunal but lost at the supreme court. Some also gave instances of some candidates that lost at the tribunal but won at the supreme court.

Meanwhile there are others that believe that Adeleke can win all, using the cases of Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo state and Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state, that displaced sitting governors.
