Ex-governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State, Prince Dotun Babayemi, on Friday, congratulated Osun State Governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke, following his victory at the Supreme Court.
Babayemi said even though the Supreme Court did not treat the core aspect of his case against the candidature of the Osun governor-elect, he did not regret his action.
The Supreme Court had on Thursday dismissed Babayemi’s suit against Adeleke on technical grounds, having filed the matter out of time.
Reacting to the decision of the court in a statement he personally signed and obtained in Osogbo, Babayemi, however, wished Adeleke a fruitful tenure and urged the people of the state to continue to support efforts that would always aid the growth of Osun.
The statement read in parts, “I want to wish the Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the PDP and the good people of Osun the very best as a new administration under the PDP prepares to berth in Osun. I pray it will bring about the long-awaited turn around to the state and its people.
“On the just concluded case at the Supreme Court, the exploration of the legal process was good for the country’s democracy.
“For us, the legal journey was a long walk and worthwhile with no iota of regret. The kernel of our case at the Supreme Court was not reviewed as it was decided on technical grounds. Above all, no regrets”
