Reactions to Isiaka Adeleke’s Victory at the Tribunal as Osun State Governor-Elect

Senator Isiaka Adeleke of PDP has been declared the rightful winner of the Osun Governorship election in 2018.

The election which was marred with enormous irregularities from various quarters was firstly declared inconclusive by INEC when Adeleke was leading, in which another date was announced for the conclusion in the poll.

Since the judgement by the tribunal sitting in Abuja this afternoon, many notable Nigerians have reacted to the development.

The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki said this in December 2018, is this a prophecy?

“Let me remind our party supporters and the pple of Osun that this INEC decision only constitutes a delay of the victory of Sen Adeleke and the PDP in the Osun Guber election…our triumph will come either through the judiciary or further balloting.“

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says:

Congratulations @IsiakaAdeleke1 on recovering your stolen mandate, little by little under rule of law, we shall recover all. @atikus is next in line! Osun people congratulations!!!

Seyi Makinde, the newly elected Governor of Oyo State says it is victory for democracy:

Congratulations, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke @IsiakaAdeleke1, the Governor-elect of Osun State. Congratulations to the people of Osun State. This is a victory for democracy. 
Fani Kayode said:
”We have done it! My state, Osun state has finally gone @OfficialPDPNig. I am overjoyed and overwhelmed. Praise the Lord! To Him alone be the glory!”
They took Ekiti and Osun States by any which way just to avoid the bandwagon effect on the Presidential election. Now Osun has slipped off their hands. By the power of God, Ekiti too will slip and they will ultimately lose the Presidency. Congratulations, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, Governor Elect of Osun State. Ultimately, Nigeria and its people will be victorious over this tyranny. – Ayo Fayose
Senator Ben Murray-Bruce:
Congratulations my colleague and brother, Senator @IsiakaAdeleke1. This victory is for Osun state.
