Nigerian Musician David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has aired his displeasure over the judgment of the Court of Appeal declaring Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the duly elected governor of Osun state .
The Osun State born singer revealed this on his Instagram page, saying he could not hide his disappointment following the ruling which was not in favour of his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the flag bearer of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2018 gubernatorial election in Osun State.
He said “My people, we cannot hide our disappointment. This judgment of the Court of Appeal. It hurts, it’s extremely painful, but guess what? It is not the end. Far from it”.
However, Davido has not given up as he believes his uncle will have the last laugh,
“Everyone, remain calm. I want to urge all our supporters to remain calm at this time. As you all know, there is one last and important lap,” he added.
“It is time for the last lap and the God I know and serve is in control.”
“We have won the first leg. We have lost the second leg but I am certain that the highest court in the land will rectify and restore all that has been stolen from us with this judgment. Everyone stay calm and stay safe! See you at the Supreme court.”
The appellate court, sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, overturned the judgment of the election tribunal that declared Adeleke the winner of the election.
