Following the appeal court verdict, the Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, on Friday, mocked his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ladi Adebutu, asking him to join him in the business of the state instead of “running from pillar to post.”
The governor also said the judiciary has once again shown its commitment to upholding the rule of law in the country.
The governor spoke at the Presidential Lodge, Abeokuta, while reacting to the verdict of the Court of Appeal, Lagos, which affirmed his 18th March election victory.
“I want to invite all our opponents who have tried their best in their quest to also govern the state; indeed, you mean well for the good people of the state.”
“Having failed at the polls, tribunal, and the appeal, you should come and join hands with us and stop running from pillar to post.”
“Having failed to buy the election, the tribunal and the appeal, stop running from pillar to post.”
“If you indeed mean well for the good people of the state, come and join hands with us in our determined resolve to build the future of this great state together,” Abiodun said.
