Senator Adeleke Reacts to Suit on Senatorial Eligibility

 

*Says it is based on falsehood, dead on arrival and will fail like others

The Senator representing Osun West senatorial district, Ademola Adeleke  has dismissed as laughable and an abuse of court process a suit seeking his removal as a senator, affirming his eligibility to contest any election in Nigeria.

In a statement issued by his legal team, Adeleke stated that the purported constituents who filed the suit are proxy forces of the All Progressive Congress and Gboyega Oyetola whom he accused of waging futile  legal harrassment following signs of an imminent end to their usurpation of Osun governorship seat.

The statement declared that “the  initial judgement that this irritating suit is based on has been widely condemned by all learned minds, especially as the document wrongly declared as forged was duly issued by the authorities of the school.

“It is in public domain and court records that the school Principal deposed to an affidavit confirming the testimonial and statement of results were duly issued by the school.WAEC’s deputy Registrar also came to depose to an Affidavit in court with the Certified True Copies  of the same result submitted by Senator for his Senatorial election screening. How can any human being still declare such result as fake or forged?

“We declare that the suit is frivolous,clearly an abuse of court processes and a waste of the precious time of the Judiciary.

“It is important to restate that the matter of qualification and eligibility have been decided by two High Court Judgements in Osun state. A recent ruling of the Appeal Court Akure Division supports the Senator’s position. This matter is also subjudice as it is already a matter before a higher court; The Appeal Court.

Senator Adeleke reassured his supporters and people of Osun state that there is no cause for alarm as this suit will surely be dismissed in its totality, declaring “this new APC’s desperate move will fail woefully just like the others have failed.

“No amount of harassment, embarrassment, intimidation and spreading of falsehood can change or stop the quest for the retrieval of the “Stolen Mandate” freely given Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The people of Osun have spoken with their votes. Their decision and choice of leader CANNOT be undermined and subjugated by any abuse of force and powers”, the statement concluded.
