Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reaffirmed his confidence in the judiciary following the victory of Senator Ademola Adeleke at the Osun Tribunal.
Reacting Adeleke’s victory in the Osun State governorship election, Atiku said truly, the judiciary is the last hope of the common man.
In a sensational ruling Friday, the tribunal had revoked the victory of Isiaka Oyetola, incumbent governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September election.
It declared the supplementary election which INEC held as illegal, directing the commission to issue a fresh certificate of return to Adeleke and withdraw the one given to Oyetola.
Atiku congratulated the PDP candidate and commended the judiciary on the landmark decision.
“Truly, the judiciary is the last hope of the common man and the defender of our democracy. Congratulations Sen. Ademola Adeleke,” he tweeted.
