Osun Election: PDP’s Adeleke Vows to Challenge Oyetola in Court

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Osun governorship election, Adeleke Ademola, has accused the All Progressives Congress of rigging the poll and stealing his mandate, saying he would seek redress in court.

Adeleke said this in a chat with ChannelsTV, insisting that he won the governorship election and that he had evidence to back his allegation of electoral fraud and rigging during the poll.

“I don’t want the APC to know about what we have on them until we get to court,” the PDP candidate said when asked what evidence he had.

“I am so confident,” he added.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Gboyega Oyetola of the APC the winner of the election after he secured got 255,505 votes, as against Adeleke’s 255,023 votes.

But Adeleke insisted that the APC did not win the polls, hence their reluctance to celebrate as they are scared because of the evidence he had gathered.

The rerun election was widely criticised by observers for not being free and fair, with the ruling party accused of harassment, vote-buying and conniving with electoral officials.
