Former deputy governor of Ekiti and candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state’s July 14 gubernatorial election, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, has said his mandate will soon be reclaimed at the tribunal.
Olusola, in a statement congratulating Senator Ademola Adeleke today in Ado Ekiti described the tribunal’s judgment as “a red signal to Gov. Kayode Fayemi.”
The former governor who lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate at the tribunal is currently at the Appeal Court seeking to be declared governor.
He said “Ekiti and Osun governorship elections were dress rehearsals for the unprecedented election rigging, vote buying and violence witnessed all over the country in the ongoing general elections ”
If this was not so manifest last year, it has become so with the charade of elections conducted last February and which is still ongoing this March. ‘”
Olusola added that PDP in Ekiti would, by the grace of God retrieve its mandate allegedly stolen by the All Progressives Congress (APC) very soon.
” If lies travel for a thousand years, the truth will catch up with it in one day, today it is Osun doing poetic justice to impostors and election riggers; tomorrow it will be the turn of Ekiti people to reclaim their own stolen mandate”.
