The Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, on Wednesday, 30th November, 2022, struck out two suits challenging the May 22nd, 2022 primary election which produced Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya (ATTACKER) as the House of Representatives candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East/ Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency in the February 2023 election.
Reacting to the judgement, the Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya (ATTACKER) commended the judiciary for taking into consideration what is right and serving justice, appropriately.
“I was truly overwhelmed by the judgement. This is what our law institutions should do -always standing by what is right at all times to avoid the miscarriage of justice. The judiciary has once again justified the confidence we reposed in them”, Adekoya said.
Speaking further, Adekoya appealed to the duo of Hon. Tele Ogunjobi, Mr. Kenny Bello and other aggrieved members of the party to sheath their swords, noting that it is a “no victor, no vanquished” situation. He maintained that as members of the same party, there is bound to be disagreement but it does not make them enemies.
“I shall be visiting my brothers – Hon. Tele Ogunjobi and Mr. Kenny Bello very soon to iron things out and map out strategies to ensure our party emerges victorious in 2023. There is no champion for ever. Someday, I’ll vacate this seat and I see them both as perfect successors. As it is usually said that success without a successor is a successful failure. By that time, I shall be willing to offer my utmost support to whoever gets the mandate between them” ATTACKER concluded.
