2022: Osun PDP Hails Judgment Affirming Senator Adeleke As Guber Candidate



The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has hailed the judgment delivered by the Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, Ondo State, which affirmed Senator Ademola Adeleke as the governorship candidate of the PDP ahead of the gubernatorial election in the state.

Osun PDP made this known in a statement signed by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Hon Ayodeji Areola, on Friday

The statement read, “Today, we are glad to report that the court of appeal in Akure had further cemented the position of our great party in electing Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke as the governorship candidate of our party in Osun State.

“The learned jurists earlier on Friday expressly affirmed that the ex parte injunction of the lower court in Osun State presided over by justice A.A Aderibigbe had lapsed by force of operations of the law. The appellate court states that setting aside the order is mere academic as the said order had outlived it’s lifespan.


“The Appeal Court also granted prayers of our legal team to put other parties on  notice  for the hearing of substantive matters before it, through publication in a reputable national daily.

“The court also warned counsel to the National Vice Chairman of our party in the Southwest, to desist from parading any other person as candidate of the party or making statements against the position of the court. It gave our legal team express permission to report appropriately, counsel to Hon Adagunodo in case of further affront against the position of the court.


“With this, we are glad to reiterate that all legal encumbrances concerning the election of our candidate at our Special State Congress, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke have been shut aside and that our great party is good to go without recourse to induced distractions.



“The Osun PDP deeply appreciates the unflinching love and concern expressed by mass of our people in the state during the desperately orchestrated confusion.


“We therefore enjoin teeming members of our party and especially the highly expectant people of Osun State not to relent in their support for aspiration of our party and that of our candidate, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke to emerge as the next governor of the state which is the only feasible panacea to the collapsing social economic wellbeing and has inflicted untold hardship on the innocent populace in the state.
