A former governorship aspirant in Ogun State, Otunba Adewale Adenaike has said that he was not surprised at the unanimous decision of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal which affirmed President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the 2019 elections.
Speaking with journalists after the judgement was delivered, Adenaike said: “I knew from the on-set that Nigerians freely gave their mandate to President Muhammadu Buhari whilst rejecting the PDP candidate and his party.”
“Nigeria’s Justice System is alive and kicking”, the Ogun State politician asserted.
“I congratulate all Nigerians for this victory regardless of political divide, its time for governance, let’s join hands with our President and his team in order to lift our country to the next level,” he added.
He advised Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to sheath his sword, accept the decision in good faith and align with Mr President for the sake of Nigerians.
When asked about why the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has not appointed his cabinet, he stated that Governor Abiodun is a system person and will do what is best for Ogun.
“I’m confident that my governor will deliver on all his promises. He will assemble the best brains in Ogun in order to drive his progressive agenda, don’t be in a hurry”, he said.
