Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Osun State, Omooba Dotun Babayemi on Friday, said he has no regrets whatsoever over his legal battle with the state’s governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke over the party’s governorship ticket.
Omooba Babayemi in a statement stressed that the exploration of the legal process was good for the country’s democracy and that efforts at ensuring that Osun State becomes one of the best states in Nigeria as envisioned by the founding fathers, should be the task for its indigenes and residents.
In the statement personally signed by him, Omooba Babayemi congratulated the Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the PDP and the people of Osun state on the decision of the apex court on the pre election case.
“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”, he said.
Omooba Babayemi added, “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 the long awaited turn around to the state and its people” .
Commending his legal team, especially Barrister Edmund Biromoini, for the efforts and time invested into the litigation process while it lasted, Omooba Babayemi thanked leaders of the party, his supporters, party members and the people of the state for standing solidly behind him throughout the struggle.
“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 behind developmentally”.
He however, called on PDP members and the people of the state to continue to support things that would always aid the growth of the state, appealing as well that they should continue to be law-abiding.
