The Osun State governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke has assured his supporters of a favourable judgement.

This comes as the Supreme Court is set to rule on a suit brought against Senator Adeleke by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial aspirant, Dotun Babayemi.

Babayemi is asking the apex court to invalidate the primary election that produced the governor-elect, citing non-compliance with a court order.

In his judgment on the matter on May 18, Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel of a Federal High Court, sitting in Osogbo, had upheld the governorship primary that produced Adeleke.

Also, the Court of Appeal, Akure Division, in its judgment of July 20 on the appeal filed against the decision of the Federal High Court, Osogbo, aligned with the lower court and dismissed Babayemi’s appeal.

Ahead of the Supreme Court judgment on Thursday, Adeleke in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, said he expected a favourable judgment from the court.

The statement read in part, “There is no tension here. His Excellency calls on his supporters to remain assured of eventual victory because we stand on legality from the beginning of the process to the end.

“Our positive expectation is also borne out of the strong faith Senator Adeleke has in the judiciary as a house of justice and seriousness.

“The judiciary and all stakeholders are fully aware that the primary that produced Senator Adeleke is approved and supervised by the National Executive Committee of the PDP with the electoral commission in attendance and with the right legal candidate participating. So the governor-elect has absolute faith in the judiciary. His message is for our people to be calm as victory is right at our door.”
