“The judgement also saved the country from brink of collapse and avoidable crisis. It is a testament to the fact that truth cannot be hidden and it is constance.

“We would have called for the disbandment of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC should the ruling of the Tribunal stand because it was a clear assault on President Buhari and the National Assembly’s achievements on electoral reforms.

Appealing for calm, the lawmaker said “The APC Family of Osun should accept this judgment in good faith and join hands with Sen. Ademola to move Osun statef forward.”

“In any electoral contest in a democracy you win some you lose some . Political campaigns and electoral contests have come and gone . It’s time to settle down for governance”, he added.
