Crisis hits Ogun APC as Osoba-led faction slams Akinlade over Supreme Court move


The Segun Osoba faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State, on Thursday, lambasted the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), and its candidate the March 9 governorship election, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade, on their plan to approach the Supreme Court, saying “court judgment is not for sale.”
The Naija Weekly recalls that the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State, had on November 11, dismissed the petition filed by Akinlade against the victory of the governor of the state and candidate of the APC, Dapo Abiodun of the APC.
In a statement on Thursday, the Publicity Secretary of APC Caretaker Committee in Ogun State, Tunde Oladunjoye, said the “APM and its candidate are serial losers who are merely shadow-chasing.”
“Our party, the APC, has unshakeable confidence in the judiciary, the APM and its candidate are serial losers who are merely shadow-chasing.
“Prince Dapo Abiodun won unanimously at the Ogun Governorship Petition Tribunal, we also won unanimously at the Appeal Court, they should be told that despite the boasts of their main sponsor, the court judgment is not for sale.
“The three-man state governorship election petitions tribunal, led by Justice Yusuf Halilu, while dismissing the petition and upholding Abiodun’s election, described Akinlade’s petition, challenging Abiodun’s victory, as ‘lazy and destined to fail’.
“This has exposed the lack of depth, procedural contaminated and virus-invested petition to the whole world.
“We advise them to get off their phantom horse and stop dragging the name of Mr President into disrepute. The court is not for traders, neither is the apex court’s judgment for sale,” Oladunjoye said.
