A former Governorship aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Dotun Babayemi has reacted to the ruling of the Supreme Court which declared Ademola Adeleke as the authentic candidate of the party.
According to Babayemi, the apex court did not treat the core aspect of his case filed against Adeleke’s candidature.
Babayemi in his reaction said he does not regret filing the lawsuit against the Osun State governor-elect.
Recall that the Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed Babayemi’s suit against Adeleke on technical grounds, having filed the matter out of time.
The former governorship aspirant in a statement released on Friday congratulated Adeleke and PDP on his victory in the apex court.
He wished the people of Osun State the very best as a new administration under PDP takes over the state.
Babayemi prayed that the administration of Adeleke will bring about the long-awaited turnaround for the state and its people.
He wrote, “On the just concluded case at the Supreme Court, the exploration of the legal process was good for the country’s democracy.
“For us, the legal journey was a long walk and worthwhile with no iota of regret. The kernel of our case at the Supreme Court was not reviewed as it was decided on technical grounds. Above all, no regrets”
