From Lateef Dada, Osogbo
The governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Dotun Babayemi, on Friday said he has no regret challenging the candidacy of Ademola Adeleke.
Babayemi who lost the bid to recognize him as the authentic governorship candidate of the PDP at the Supreme Court stated that the exploration of the legal process was good for the country’s democracy.
In a statement he signed and made available to our correspondent in Osogbo, Babayemi congratulated the Governor-elect, Adeleke, the PDP and the people of the state on the decision of the apex court.
“I want to wish the Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the PDP and the good people of Osun the very best as a new administration under the PDP prepares to berth in Osun. I pray it will bring about a long-awaited turnaround for the state and its people.
“For us, the legal journey was a long walk and worthwhile with no iota of regret. The kernel of our case at the Supreme Court was not reviewed as it was decided on technical grounds. Above all, no regrets.
“From the depth of my heart, I want to thank everyone for their wonderful support in various forms. I’m indeed very grateful. I want to plead that we ensure that nothing breaks our resolve at making sure that Osun never lags developmentally,” he advised
