All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of Osun has heartily welcomed the decision by the PDP to proceed to the tribunal to seek redress for its perceived irregularity during the August 9 governorship election in which its candidate, Iyiola Omisore, suffered a defeat.

The APC said it was a pleasant departure from what they know of PDP’s disposition to settling scores through violence, intimidation and terror.

“Now that PDP has embraced a civilised approach to democratic engagement,” the APC said, “its flag-bearer and the leadership of the party in Osun should also remember that in court you don’t manufacture facts and figures, you support them instead with credible evidence.

“Since the PDP was also infamous for awful lies and fabrication of false figures, it should be conscious that such fabrications cannot stand in the court of law,” the APC said.

“ So, as the PDP goes to the tribunal today, a new chapter is being written in Osun’s preference for the rule of law rather than the rule of the jungle which had characterised PDP’s politics before and shortly after the August 9 election.

“We in the APC have nothing to worry about because we know that we won the election fair and square. Even Professor Attahiru Jega, the INEC Chairman has attested to that in a public statement in which he said that the election “was nearly rigged” apparently by whoever of the losers he did not specify.

“Our confidence is even further boosted by the defection of John Abolarinwa Abidoye, the Osun PDP’s legal adviser to the APC on Tuesday (a day before the PDP filed its case at the Tribunal).

“He knows the facts because he participated in the election as a PDP agent. That is why he could say factually that, “the people of Osun truly voted for Aregbesola. Across the state, they spoke loud and clear,” the APC stated.
