Oyo state governor-elect Seyi Makinde has
described Friday judgment of the Osun state governorship election tribunal declaring Senator Ademola Adeleke winner as “a resistance to jack-knee democracy which President Buhari is desperately spreading across the land.”
The governor-elect stated this in his congratulatory message signed on his behalf by Prince Dotun Oyelade made available to journalists in Ibadan.
According to Makinde, with the Friday’s judgment the Osun election tribunal, the Nigerian Judiciary may end up being the beacon of democracy in Nigeria in the foreseeable future.
Makinde added that the pronouncement of the Election Tribunal on the Osun state gubernatorial election “will reverberate through history because the judgment was not only a validation of an obvious plebiscite, but it was a resistance to jack-knee democracy which President Buhari is desperately spreading across the land”.
He, however tasked Nigerians to brace up for more shocking judicial judgements that will redirect our traumatised nation along the path of free and fair elections which appear to be alien to contemporary Nigerian leaders
