Appeal Court ruling ‘hurts’, Davido decries uncle, Adeleke’s loss

Popular musician, Davido has described as ‘extremely painful’ the ruling of the Court of Appeal which dismissed an earlier Tribunal ruling that declared his uncle, Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the 2018 governorship election in Osun State.

The appellate court on Thursday overturned the ruling of the lower court and declared Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress as the duly elected governor of Osun State.

Davido, in a post on his Instagram page, urged supporters to remain steadfast as the Supreme Court would correct the wrong.

“My people, we cannot hide our disappointment. This judgment of the Court of the Appeal. It hurts, it’s extremely painful, but guess what? It is not the end. Far from it.

“Everyone, remain calm. I want to urge all our supporters to remain calm at this time. As you all know, there is one last and important lap.

“It is time for the last lap and the God I know and serve is in control,“ he said.

He added, “We have won the first leg. We have lost the second leg but I am certain that the highest court in the land will rectify and restore all that has been stolen from us with this judgment.

“Everyone stay calm and stay safe! See you at the Supreme court,“ he wrote.
