The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has said he was always confident that the tribunal would uphold his emergence as the winner of the March 18 gubernatorial election in the state.
This is as he said that he did not entertain any fear that the judgment of the Ogun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal would go against him.
Abiodun said this while reacting to the Saturday judgment of the tribunal, which affirmed his victory and dismissed the petition filed by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ladi Adebutu, to challenge the outcome of the poll.
Abiodun made this known in a press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Lekan Adeniran.
“We were never in doubt that our hard-earned victory would be affirmed as we placed our trust in God, having worked the hardest campaigning in every nook and cranny of Ogun State. We won fair and square, we earned it and deserved it.”
He, however, called on the opposition to drop their animosity and join him in the task of developing Ogun State.
The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State, Yemi Sanusi, said the victory would propel the governor to work more to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
