The Governor of Oy State, Seyi Makinde has shown gratitude to everyone who stood by him during the judicial processes.

Recall that Gistmania had reported that the Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld Makinde’s election as governor of Oyo State.

The appeal was filed by the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adebayo Adelabu.

Adelabu lost to Makinde during the March 9, 2019 elections.

The APC governorship candidate had approached the Supreme Court to challenge the appeal court ruling.

The appellate court after evaluating the evidence brought by Oyo APC and its candidate ruled that the status quo should be maintained.

Reacting on his official Twitter page, Makinde thanked the people of Oyo State, for their overwhelming support throughout the judicial process.

“I am overwhelmed by the goodwill & congratulatory messages we’ve received as a result of the affirmation of our victory at the polls by the Supreme Court, earlier today.

“I am delighted that our faith & confidence in the judiciary as the last hope for the oppressed was rewarded.

“We are deeply thankful to you, the people of Oyo State, for your overwhelming support throughout the judicial process. We remain committed to acting in your best interest, as we continue to deliver on our people-centred policies as outlined in our Road Map for Accelerated Development,”
he added.
