Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun says that he went through one of the most turbulent electoral processes becoming a governor.
Abiodun noted that he had gone through about nine pre-election cases before his emergence as governor.
Speaking with journalists on Sunday in Abeokuta, the governor said the tribunal’s verdict on Saturday which validated his victory was further affirmation that with God nothing shall be impossible.
The Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal had dismissed the petition filed against Abiodun’s victory in the March 9 election by the Allied Peoples Movement candidate, Adekunle Akinlade.
Abiodun, while reacting to his victory at the tribunal, said, “I have gone through probably one of the most turbulent periods any governor could have gone through.
“I went through several pre-election cases, about eight or nine, and also this tribunal.
“God has continued to remain God. This mandate is a divine one and I believe that it is obvious to all.
“This is the decision of the people of Ogun State which was further ratified by the tribunal,” he said.
The governor reiterated his commitment to ensuring better life for the people, pledging that dividends of democracy would cut across all the nooks and crannies of the state.
