THE Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organisation, yesterday, vowed to appeal the judgement of a Bwari High Court on allegation of forgery against Senator Ademola Adeleke and his qualification to contest in the governorship election of Osun State.
The organisation, in a statement issued by Mr Niyi Owolade said: “We received with bewilderment the judgement of a Bwari High Court on allegation of forgery against Senator Ademola Adeleke and his qualification to contest in the governorship election of Osun State. The judgment subverted justice by ignoring four critical evidences to rule against validated facts and submissions.
“While we are set to appeal the judgement, we also find it compelling to put the records straight by listing out the fatal flaws in the ruling and why it cannot stand before any court.
“We affirm that the judgment is a travesty of justice, a purchased ruling designed to negatively affect the outcome of Osun governorship judicial process.
“We declare unequivocally that the ruling being so glaringly against tested facts and the law cannot stand. It is also clear that the ruling cannot in anyway stop the reality that Senator Ademola Adeleke fulfilled constitutional requirements to be governor of Osun State.
”This is another failed bid in the efforts of enemies of democracy. Senator Adeleke is not only qualified but by the grace of God will soon be sworn in as the legitimate governor of Osun State.”
