Atiku is in court challenging Buhari's victory in the February 23 presidential election.
Senator Ademola Adeleke aka the dancing Senator has lost the battle to regain his electoral victory in the last governorship election held in Osun State after the Supreme Court earlier today, upheld the victory of Gboyega Odetola of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Following the Supreme Court ruling on Friday 5th of July, well wishers across the country especially from the PDP, identified with Adeleke by sending words of encouragement. The PDP presidential candidate in the last February 23 elections, and who is also in court to challenge Buhari's victory in February elections, has also sent his thoughts as he encourages the Senator to not allow the Supreme Court ruling to weigh him down.

Speaking via his official Facebook page, Atiku also called on the nation's judiciary system to now allow itself be used by any individual to pervert justice in the country.

He said, "I join with people of goodwill all over Nigeria to say to Senator Ademola Adeleke, and the people of the great state of Osun, that we stand with them in good times and in difficult days.

"The Supreme Court has ruled and because of its judicial finality, the legal case is over. However, the love, acceptance and endorsement that the people of Osun bestowed on both Senator Adeleke and the Peoples Democratic Party is not over and cannot be overlooked.

"Those who think this is the end of the road for Senator Adeleke and the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun, are greatly mistaken. This is not the end. Not even the beginning of the end. No. Today marks the continued ascendancy of Senator Adeleke and his party in the hearts and minds of his people.

"They had expected that the progress and development that the Adeleke family had consistently brought to Osun will be translated to their governance. That hope is not dead. Only delayed.

"I extend my right hand of brotherhood to Senator Adeleke in all his future endeavours and I assure the good people of the state of Osun that the Peoples Democratic Party remembers their love and acceptance and will never forget to stand by them no matter the situation.

"Finally, I urge the nation’s judiciary to take a pulse of the nation and reflect it. In their hands, God has placed a great responsibility. The duty to ensure that justice is done, irrespective of the pressure to do otherwise, by the powers that be."
