The All Progressives Congress (APC), Osun State chapter on Thursday said it is fully prepared to challenge the outcome of the July 16 governorship poll at the Election Petition Tribunal.
The party chairman in the state, Prince Adegboyega Famoodu who dropped the hint while fielding questions from newsmen after a press conference held at the party Secretariat in Osogbo, disclosed that the party has a good case to pursue.
According to him, “Our legal team, composed of outstanding legal icons, has told us that we have a strong case and we believe we will win at the court.”
It will be recalled that, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the Governorship candidate Of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was on July, 17th declared as winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The chairman condemned the role played by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola before, during and after the election.
He insisted that Aregbesola and his supporters under the aegis of The Osun Progressives TOP worked assiduously against the victory of the All Progressives Congress.
“If they all have conscience, it would not be out of tune for the said TOP members and their leaders to do an individualistic soul-searching and ask themselves if they are indeed worthy to be called the members of our party again by their obnoxious actions and inactions which partly contributed to the temporary loss of our party’s governorship election in Osun State.
“Since politics is a game of number and the more the merrier; continuous membership of our party is not foreclosed to any genuine member whose interest would not be counter-productive to the interest of our party as you cannot be an outsider and be canvassing for the restructuring of the party.’’
