Osun APC asks Ademola Adeleke to stop insulting the sensibilities of the judiciary
The state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned Senator Ademola Adeleke not to talk himself into unnecessary trouble due to the recent spate of unguarded statements he has made since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared him the winner of the governorship election in Osun State on July 16, 2022.
When officially welcoming Dr. Wale Bolorunduro, a former State Commissioner for Finance under former Governor Rauf Aregbesola, into the Peoples' Democratic Party a few days ago at Ijebu-Jesa, Adeleke claimed (PDP).
At the time, Adeleke said the APC and Oyetola's appeal against him, his party, and INEC was dead on arrival and that it had no substantive information.
But, reacting to the Adeleke’s outburst, the State APC Chairman, Mr. Gboyega Famodun, in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Mr. Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, cautioned Adeleke to stop insulting the sensibilities of the judiciary as it is improper and prejudicial to comment on any issue that is before the court.
Famodun hinted that there was no need for Adeleke to be grandstanding and trying to be clever by half as there was no reason under the sun for the governor-elect to be avoiding the service of the court process if actually there is nothing in the Oyetola petition.
He advised Adeleke to sit up and stop acting like a meddlesome interloper to the cause of justice.
Famodun reminded Adeleke that the court is not a rendezvous for the display of emotion and sentiment but verifiable facts.
He asked: “Why have you been speaking from all the corners of your mouth as if you will sit in judgment at the tribunal over the Osun governorship election petition?”
