The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Friday expressed shocked over the ruling of the Supreme Court on the contentious Osun State Governorship election.

The Supreme Court in its ruling on Friday, upheld the victory of Gboyega Oyetola, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in the 2018 governorship election in Osun state.

But reacting in a statement, Kola Ologbondiyan, the National publicity secretary of the party said "The fact that the Supreme Court had a split judgment also speaks volumes on its verdict in this matter.

"Our study of the judgment however shows that the Supreme Court did not negate the position of the PDP and millions of Nigerians that our candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke won the election, but based its verdict on reservations over issues of technicalities arising at the election petition tribunal.

"Nevertheless, our party stands with overwhelming majority of Nigerians on that undeniable fact that the people of Osun State, by the votes cast at the poll, preferred Senator Adeleke as their governor.

"The PDP, as a law-abiding party, however, urges the people of Osun state to remain united, calm and not lose hope in our democratic process and the quest for a government that truly represents their wishes and aspirations.
