While appealing to his supporters to remain calm, Oyetola assured them of a positive ruling at the Court of Appeal.
“The Government of the State of Osun wishes to appreciate the teeming support of the majority of the people in all things essential for mutual progress,” a statement by Mr. Wole Oyebamiji, Secretary to the State Government of Osun said.
“As it is, the administration of His Excellency, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, Governor, State of Osun wishes to assure the people that the judgment of the Election Tribunal has been put on appeal.
“This is to further assure all the residents of the State of adequate security of lives and properties, as the Government of the State is still the only legitimate Government having the authority to govern the State.
“We assure all our people that justice will prevail at last, and the law enforcement agencies have been instructed to maintain law and order across the State.
“We therefore urge all the residents of the State to go about their lawful duties without any hindrance,” the statement read.
