Ousted Osun State governor, Gboyega Oyetola has revealed that he will remain in office pending the outcome of his appeal challenging last Friday’s judgment of the election petition tribunal.

Governor Oyetola who made the comments while inspecting some on-going road and drainage projects in the state capital, Osogbo, also noted that his faith in the judiciary remains unshaken despite the nullification of his election.

He said; “I am confident that our mandate will be reaffirmed at the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. As you all know, it was a split judgment, telling us that it was not a unanimous decision. This is part of our strength at the Appellate Court.

“I must correct the impression that I have been removed from office. I remain the governor of Osun till all the electoral litigations are finalised.

“So, my visit to this site is in furtherance of our commitment to ensure a better life for all residents of the state and to demonstrate that governance brought about by our government continues”, Oyetola added.
