Adeleke criticised the resolution of the over-voting question in favour of former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola from his country home in Ede, calling it ” an unfair interpretation against the will of the majority of voters.”
He urged his supporters to remain calm, insisting that he is still the legitimate winner of the election held on July 16.
He said, “I urge our people to maintain their composure. We will appeal the ruling, and we are confident that justice will prevail. Assure our people that we will do everything in our power to maintain this widely acclaimed mandate.”
