Speaking on the move to appeal the judgement, he added, “As we commence the process of filing our notice of appeal at the Court of Appeal, we assure our teeming supporters and the good people of Ogun State that we will not relent in our resolve to get justice and we will explore and deploy every resources at our disposal to right this injustice in the collective interest of our dear State.”
Reacting to the judgement, Akinlade said, “As a people and party, we must take solace in three facts: first, that the Tribunal is the court of first instance; second, that we are blessed with a resolute leader and lastly, that time, which is the determinant of all things, is on our side.”
While admonishing the PDP faithful and people of Ogun State to see the judgement as a temporary setback, he said, “from the beginning, we predicted this outcome, considering the set of individuals we are engaging.”
He went down memory lane, saying: “In 2022, they threw everything they had at us, got our candidates and party (PDP) removed from INEC list with the intention of stopping us from participating in the 2023 general elections. They went to town saying that there was no opposition in Ogun State, but we turned to God, fought courageously and the courts reinstated us.
The Deputy Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ogun State, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade, has said the party would challenge the result of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
