Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has rejected the Tribunal judgement which sacked him on Friday.
NAIJA LIVE TV reports that the governor, who told his supporters that there is no cause for alarm, disclosed that he will challenge the ruling at the Court of Appeal.
“I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done.
“Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate,” the governor said in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed.
Recall this newspaper had reported that the Osun Tribunal, led by Justice Tetsea Kume, in a split document of two to one, declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Adeleke and issue the same to former Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
The judgment has stirred a significant conversation on social media.
