GOVERNOR’S SPECIAL BROADCAST IN RESPONSE TO THE TRIBUNAL’S VERDICT
My dear people of the State of Osun
I address you this day to inform you that, in response to the judgment of the Osun Governorship Election Tribunal, sitting at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Friday, the 22nd day of March, 2019, we have gone on appeal to challenge the split decision of the Tribunal.
This split decision notwithstanding, our confidence in the judiciary remains unshaken, which is why we are going back to it for necessary review through the Appellate Court.
In accordance with the dictates of law, our government remains intact pending the decision of the higher courts. The status quo remains, and the business of governance continues under my watch.
I have directed all law enforcement agencies as a matter of duty to continue to maintain law and order across the State.
I would, therefore, appeal to you all to remain calm and go about your legitimate businesses, while we explore the instruments of the law to reaffirm the mandate that you freely gave to us.
I thank you for your support all the way and urge you to remain faithful to the kernels that have made our State the land of virtue.
Osun ti n dara.
