Octogenarian and Action Congress of Nigeria Chieftain in Alimosho Local GovernmentÂ area of Lagos State, Alhaji Abudu Rasak Oyekan Keye hasÂ applauded the judgement ofÂ the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan whichÂ declared Engr. Rauf Adesoji AregbesolaÂ the duly elected governor of Osun State in the April 2007 election.
Speaking with pressmen at the venue of the inauguration in Osun State, the AareÂ Musulumi of Shashaland described Aregbesolaâ€™s victory as the triumph of truth overÂ falsehood.
He said in a statement that the judiciary has done the nation proud by enlisting onÂ the side of democracy and rule of law.
According to him, Aregbesola has successfully walked down a narrow path of justice.
“Almighty Allah has many attributes, he is Allah of justice. He has shown one of hisÂ attributes, just as he did in Ekiti and Edo states where he proved to Nigerians thatÂ justice could never be stood on its head,” he said.
He praised Almighty Allah for not disappointing the new governor’s well-wishersÂ afterÂ series of special prayersÂ organised specially for Aregbesola at Keye OyekanÂ Memorial Mosque to ensure victory at the Court of Appeal.
While thanking the former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,Â Governor Raji Fashola and members of Action Congress of Nigeria for their supportÂ and cooperation during the legal battle.
