Keyamo Reacts As PDP, LP Jubilate Over Adeleke’s Supreme Court Victory
Meanwhile, Keyamo, on Wednesday, reacted to the victory of the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, at the Supreme Court.
Naija News reported that the apex court on Tuesday affirmed Adeleke, who was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the July 16, 2022, gubernatorial election, as the Osun Governor.
Reacting via Twitter, Keyamo said many people are of the opinion that any court judgment against the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a victory for the rule of law, nevertheless, he would congratulate Adeleke on his victory.
He, however, said the opposition parties have failed to reflect on the issue of over-voting shown in the BVAS, a case before the election tribunal, hence, they should wait for the outcome in a few months’ time.
