APC National Convention: Oyetola congratulates Omisore



Oyetola spoke shortly after the announcement of Omisore as the newly elected National Secretary of the APC at the party’s national convention in Abuja on Sunday.

The governor also congratulated the new National Chairman of the party, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, and other members of the APC National Working Committee (NWC).

He said he believed that the former Osun deputy governor would bring his wealth of experience to bear in the administration and management of the party’s affairs.

Oyetola expressed confidence in the ability of Omisore to deliver and contribute to the growth of the party through his new position.

According to the governor, Omisore will deploy his political sagacity, leadership qualities and experience ,which he acquired in both public and private sectors, towards building a virile and healthy party at the centre.

The News Agency of Nigeria ((NAN) reports that the former Osun deputy governor was returned elected through a consensus arrangement reached by other aspirants ,who withdrew from the contest.

NAN reports that the position of the APC National Secretary was zoned to the South-West by the party’s national leadership.

Oyetola hailed the leadership quality of President Muhammadu Buhari and praised him for playing a fatherly role to unite the party in the interest of all.

“First of all, I must thank our leaders in the South-West for their support for our own Sen. Iyiola Omisore.

“This is a great thing for us in Osun APC and I must thank other contestants for conceding and accepting to withdraw from the race.

“I commend them for the bold step, just as I assure them of our support in their times of need. I have no doubt in the capacity of Otunba Omisore to deliver and take our party to greater level.

“As you can see, the peaceful atmosphere here and the seamless conduct of the convention is a testimony to the strong unity that exists in our party,” he said.

Omisore said the successful conduct of the convention was an attestation that the APC had its ways of resolving issues without necessarily resorting to conflict.

He added that contrary to the negative expectations of some people, the APC National Convention went on peacefully.

The governor said that security operatives did wonderfully well in ensuring security of life and property.

“I am really proud of what had happened today, it is a sign that our party is united, formidable and remained indivisible.

“In achieving all these, I must personally commend the leadership quality provided by President Muhammadu Buhari who always advocate for harmony and peace in the party.

“It is natural to have disagreement, but what is important is the ability to have workable mechanism to resolve any crisis without necessarily resorting to rancour.

“I am confident that with the existing unity in the APC, our party will continue to remain in power beyond 2023 by the grace of God,” Oyetola added.

Also speaking, Omisore expressed gratitude to God, President Buhari, Gov. Oyetola, APC leaders and co-contenders for the unflinching support and confidence reposed in him to serve the party.

He promised never to disappoint them ,saying he would live up to expectations.(NAN)

Lagos Governorship Elections: Rhodes-Vivour Takes Next Step After Tribunal Verdict

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has announced his intention to appeal the verdict of the Lagos Governorship Elections Petitions Tribunal.

Rhodes-Vivour stated this in a press release on Tuesday while sharing his stance on the judgement.

He insisted that the essence of democracy not only lies in one’s ability to vote but also the capacity to defend the votes.

The essence of democracy lies not only in our ability to vote but also in our capacity to defend the integrity of that vote.

“Consequently, our laws allow Governorship candidates to challenge the decisions of the electoral tribunals at the Court of Appeal, and up to the Supreme Court. In light of this, my lawyers have been instructed to appeal this judgment, as we remain confident of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts,” he said.

While urging his supporters and Lagosians in general to remain calm, peaceful, and law-abiding, Rhodes-Vivour expressed the hope of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts.

“In these trying times, your unwavering support means the world to us, we must remain united, vigilant, and hopeful.

The ultimate victory may take time to come our way, but it is, we strongly believe inevitable as we have come to understand that the wheels or justice may sometimes grind slowly but it definitely grinds to a sure end,” the LP candidate added.

I’ll continue to fight – Atiku breaks silence on tribunal judgement




The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, has vehemently rejected the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

We recall that PEPT on Wednesday struck out the petition filed by Atiku and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.

The tribunal held that the petitions by the candidates and their parties lacked merit, upholding the election of Tinubu.

The judgement was delivered by the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani, assisted by other members of the panel, namely justices Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf, Stephen Adah, Moses Ugo, and Abba Mohammed.

Reacting, Atiku, in a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, rejected the verdict, saying the battle to upturn Tinubu’s victory continues.

The former Vice President, who called himself a fighter, said he had instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.

He said:

“I am here today to give my official reaction to the judgement delivered yesterday by the Presidential Election Petition Court on the 2023 presidential elections.

“As you already know, I approached the court following the declaration by the INEC that the APC and its candidate are the winners of the February 25 elections. My decision to go to court was anchored in my belief that the court is the sanctuary of justice.

“Indeed, I am no stranger to legal battles. I can say that I have a fair idea of how the court system works. All through my career as a politician, I have been a fighter, and I will continue to fight.

“Our aim of conducting credible elections in the country was compromised by INEC through the way it managed the presidential election.

“I am afraid that the judgement of the PEPT yesterday failed to restore confidence in our dream of free and fair elections devoid of human manipulation.

“I am here to tell you that though the judgement of the court yesterday is respected, it is a judgement that I refused to accept.

“I refuse to accept it because I believe it is devoid of substantial justice. I have asked my lawyers to constitutionally activate the guaranteed right to appeal in the higher court.”
