Ogun Guber: Adebutu confident of victory at Supreme Court


Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the March 18 governorship poll in Ogun State, Lati Adebutu, has expressed optimism on his chances of securing victory at the Supreme Court.

Adebutu spoke while reacting to the judgement of the Appeal Court, which dismissed his petition against Governor Dapo Abiodun on Friday.

In a statement signed by Afolabi Orekoya, Director of Media, Ladi Adebutu Campaign Organisation, the PDP candidate stated that the court at the higher level is gradually evaluating the merits of the case, in contrast to the lower court, which preferred to address technicalities over merit.

The statement read, “Having received the Appeal Court judgement on Ogun State Governorship election on Friday in Lagos, we could gladly see that true justice is on the way and the hope of reclaiming the mandate of the good people of Ogun State is drawing nearer.

“The appeal judgment that can be described as the pathway to victory resolved unanimously, five out of the eight issues in our favor, only one issue in favor of the respondents ( Dapo Abiodun and APC) while the other two issues were resolved in ratio two to one.”
