A'Court Victory: AMORAN Congratulates Gov. Abiodun, Says Will Of The People Prevailed
The leadership of the Articulate Motorcycle Owners & Riders Association of Nigeria (AMORAN) has conveyed congratulatory message to the governor of Ogun state; Prince Dapo Abiodun on his victory at the court of appeal.
On Friday, 23rd of November, 2023, the court of appeal sitting Igbosere, Lagos dismissed an appeal filed by Oladidpupo Adebutu, the defeated candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging Abiodun's victory in the March 18, 2023 governorship election.
Having lost woefully at the election petition tribunal sitting in Abeokuta, the opposition candidate took his case to the appellate court where he lost again as the decisions of the lower court were upheld.
In a congratulatory message issued by its publicity secretary, Otunba Taofeek Sokoya (a.k.a Danku), the union said the judgement delivered by the court of appeal affirms that the rule of law is meant to protect the will of the people in a free and fair electioneering process.
He also urged Oladidpupo Adebutu to eat the humble pie and work with the governor for the development of the state.
“On behalf of the Alowonle-led state executives and the entire members of AMORAN in Ogun state, I wish to congratulate our performing governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun and his deputy, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele on the Court of Appeal judgment affirming their overwhelming victory in the governorship election held on the 18th of March, 2023".
“The confidence reposed in the Abiodun administration by the good people of Ogun state has been well earned and and I have no doubt it will be wholly respected"
“I urge our brother, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu to place partisan politics on the shelf for the moment and join hands as much as possible for the good and development of the Gateway State.
“Once again, I rejoice with Governor Dapo Abiodun, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele and indeed, the good people of the state over this court victory.”
