Kolapo Olusola-Eleka, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the July 14, 2018 governorship election in Ekiti state, has rejected the judgment of the Court of Appeal in his suit challenging the victory of Governor Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He vowed to challenge Thursday’s court of appeal judgment affirming Fayemi as the duly elected governor of Ekiti state.
Olusola-Eleka also condemned the manner in which the appeal court dismissed his appeal, saying it suggested that “our democracy is endangered.’’
“The judiciary is being gagged and justices are constantly being molested and persecuted,” he said.
He assured his followers, party and the people of Ekiti that his legal team would study the appeal court judgment and take necessary actions.
The former deputy commended the people of the state for the hope and confidence reposed in him, assuring them that justice would be served in the end.
“Let us remain prayerful, it is not over, until it’s over. I have hope in the judiciary and I strongly believe that in the end, justice will be served,” he said.
