The Effect of the Supreme Court ruling on Ondo State Governorship tussle between Jide Jegede, People’s Democratic Party, PDP, candidate at the last state election, and Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, reverberated in Ilorin, on Thursday after a group within the Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by deposed chairman, Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa (BOB) accused the national leadership of the ruling party of complicity in the conflicts in the state chapter of the party.
Though Akeredolu won, the apex court ruling by a very narrow margin against Jegede, the Supreme Court justices were unanimous that the Mai Mala Buni-led the caretaker committee in the ruling party is untenable in the face of the law.
“It is difficult to absolve the current National leadership of our party of complicity in the crisis rocking APC in Kwara State today. They have tried all the tricks in the book to pervert the cause of justice on issues, but our God is a God of justice,” explained Barr. Ladi Mustapha, Caretaker Legal Adviser, Kwara State APC, in a press conference at the party secretariat in Ilorin.
The chieftain further used the opportunity to affirm BOB as the authentic party chairman in Kwara state.
“We have remained undaunted, resolute and focused on the ideals and philosophy of our party.
