Singer Davido and Osun state PDP chairman Soji Adagunodo, have reacted to Senator Ademola Adeleke’s loss at the court of Appeals and vowed that the party will head to the Supreme Court to challenge the ruling which declared Governor Oyetola the winner of the 2018 governorship election.
Speaking to pressmen shortly after the ruling, PDP state chairman Soji Adagunodo said:
“Technicality was what Wole Olanipekun laid before the court. There was no argument about the decision of the Tribunal that gave us victory. We will upturn the judgement at the Supreme Court. It is democracy at play. We will study the Appeal Court judgment appropriately and challenge it at the supreme court”

A Tribunal in Abuja few weeks ago had declared Senator Ademola Adeleke as winner of the Osun election.
However, the Court of Appeal judgment which was delivered by Justice Hannatu Sankey set aside the entire proceedings of the Tribunal because of its “faulty composition”. The judgment was upheld by four justices of the five-man panel.
This is all coming few days after Senator Adeleke was arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force and taken into custody on the evening of Monday, May 6, 2019.
Singer Davido also went on twitter to express his disappointment at the ruling but stated that they would not give up as they headed to the highest court in the land.
