The Peoples Democratic Party Candidates In Osun Governorship Election Ademola Adeleke shouldn’t celebrate yet, because this same thing happen to Dakuku and Mama Taraba who also won at the tribunal.
I was walking home from work when a friend called me with a joyous tone that the tribunal has declared the PDP candidate for Osun Gubernatorial election winner. I asked what was the celebration all about he said he is now the governor na. I just called him “olodo and dropped the call.
Tribunal judgments since election cases get to the Supreme Court has become a mere academic exercise. After the 2015 governorship election, many candidates who lost the election went to court.
Yours truly followed the cases of the then Rivers State Apc governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Adol Peterside and Taraba State governorship candidate of the Apc Mrs. Aisha Alhassan, (Mama Taraba).
These candidates won at the tribunal and the court of appeal but lost at the apex court.
So what’s the celebration all about? Adeleke and the PDP should not celebrate yet until this matter gets to the Supreme Court.
So I wonder the need for this half celebration that might be shortlived.
People should understand the intrigues of legal battles before rushing to celebrate.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
