Adeleke was the governorship candidate of the PDP in the poll.

Atiku via his verified Twitter handle said, “Those who think this is the end of the road for Senator Adeleke and the PDP in Osun, are greatly mistaken. This is not the end. Not even the beginning of the end. No. Today marks the continued ascendancy of Senator Adeleke and his party in the hearts and minds of his people.”

The former Vice President added, “I join with people of goodwill all over Nigeria to say to Senator Ademola Adeleke, and the people of the great state of Osun, that we stand with them in good times and in difficult days. The Supreme Court has ruled and because of its judicial finality, the legal case is over.

“However, the love, acceptance and endorsement that the people of Osun bestowed on both Senator Adeleke and the @OfficialPDPNig is not over and cannot be overlooked.

“The great people of Osun had expected that the progress and development that the Adeleke family had consistently brought to Osun will be translated to their governance. That hope is not dead. Only delayed.

“I extend my right hand of brotherhood to Senator Adeleke in all his future endeavours and I assure the good people of the state of Osun that the Peoples Democratic Party remembers their love and acceptance and will never forget to stand by them no matter the situation.”

Atiku also called on the Judiciary to reflect the feelings of the citizenry in their judgements.

He said, “Finally, I urge the nation’s judiciary to take a pulse of the nation and reflect it. In their hands, God has placed a great responsibility. The duty to ensure that justice is done, irrespective of the pressure to do otherwise, by the powers that be.”

  1. Atiku Abubakar, this is nonsense talk. One must not talk just for the sake of it. Firstly, it is the end of the raod for the dancing senator Adeleke as far as the governorship of the State of Osun is concerned, for the next four years, at the least. Secondly, how best can people show love if not by investing their trust,through their VOTES with the person and the highest Court in the land has just confirmed who the good people of the State of Osun showed Love by investing their VOTES with him and his party, the APC. Thirdly, it is only for the dying Party, the PDP and its thieving members that whenever Court judgement is in their favour, those Judges and the Judiciary would be the best thing that has happened to the country but if and when it is otherwise,when they loose the case, the Judges and the Judiciary is “compromised” by the “powers that be”. But Nigerians are not deceived by the proverbial Ostrich posture of the PDP and its people whose competence lies in always carrying money about looking for who to buy-over,forgetting, however,that we are in an entirely different dispensation now under by beloved PMB and his progressive party, the APC.
