His rich experience, leadership abilities and political competencies offer a remarkable opportunity to foster significant development through effective legislation that will engender people oriented policies and interventions, ” the statement noted.
The National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting at the Magistrate Court in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, had affirmed Adeola’s triumph as the duly elected lawmaker for Ogun West Senatorial District in the last February 25 National Assembly election.
Delivering its judgement in the Senatorial election Petition marked EPT/OG/Sen/2023 and filed by the Peoples Democratic Party senatorial candidate, Dada Adeleke, Justice Kabir Gabo–led three-man panel dismissed Adeleke’s petition for “lacking in merit.”
The panel affirmed Senator Adeola of the All Progressives Congress as the validly elected lawmaker for Ogun West as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Adeyemi prayed for God’s guidance over the Senator for the benefits of the good people of Ogun State especially people of his constituency.
