We support movement of Osun Election Petition Tribunal sitting to Abuja -- APC

Niyi Akande, Osogbo.

All Progressives Congress (APC), in Osun has declared support for the movement of the election petition tribunal hearing PDP petition against its candidate in the poll, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, who was returned elected by INEC, to Abuja.

Read APC's statement issued on Sunday, where it declared it's support for the movement of the sitting of the panel to Abuja

''WeintheAPC have no objection to the relocation of the State's Gubernatorial Election Petition Tribunal to Abuja. It is a legal process permitted by the law of Nigeria. We support the movement, so long it dispenses justice fairly and without favour.

''We like to point out to the  PDP and its candidate, Sen. Ademola Adeleke  that by the fact on the ground of the two elections, and the official and legitimate pronouncement of the results of those elections by INEC, the mandate of the people of Osun remains that of Alhaji Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola and not for Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke; not as the PDP is claiming.

''Unless and until that reality is overturned by the courts, the mandate for governorship of the state by Osun people remains that of the APC candidate, Alhaji Oyetola.

''So, they should stop talking nonsense about a stolen mandate''.
