Speaking to pressmen shortly after the ruling, PDP state chairman Soji Adagunodo said:

“Technicality was what Wole Olanipekun laid before the court. There was no argument about the decision of the Tribunal that gave us victory. We will upturn the judgement at the Supreme Court. It is democracy at play. We will study the Appeal Court judgment appropriately and challenge it at the supreme court”

A Tribunal in Abuja few weeks ago had declared Senator Ademola Adeleke as winner of the Osun election.

However, the Court of Appeal judgment which was delivered by Justice Hannatu Sankey set aside the entire proceedings of the Tribunal because of its “faulty composition”. The judgment was upheld by four justices of the five-man panel.

This is all coming few days after Senator Adeleke was arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force and taken into custody on the evening of Monday, May 6, 2019.
