PDP slams attempt to stop Adeleke’s inauguration

The Osun State Caretaker Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr Akindele Adekunle, has commended the judiciary for refusing to grant an order to stop the governorship inauguration of Senator Ademola Adeleke slated for Sunday.

A statement by Adekunle obtained in Osogbo on Thursday said some people approached a Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo and asked for an order to stop Adeleke’s inaguration.

Adekunle said, “His lordship, Justice Emmanuel, in his wisdom, declined granting the order, adjourning the case to Thursday to explain why the swearing-in must stop.


“It beats imagination of any sound mind to even contemplate halting a democratic constitutional process. The greed for power is driving some defeated politicians into electoral insanity.

“We call on the legal disciplinary committee to summon the affected lawyers for disciplinary encounter. There must be a red line. To surrender oneself as a tool to destabilise democracy should warrant disciplinary action from the bar.”
