Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun said that his administration would now keep its eyes on the further development of the state, following his Supreme Court victory on Friday.
Abiodun stated this in an interview with newsmen in Iperu-Remo, shortly after his arrival from Abuja.
The governor said that all attempts to distract his administration had failed, noting that the Supreme Court victory marked an end to court shopping by his political adversaries.
He called on the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ladi Adebutu and other political adversaries to get ready for their re-run in 2027.
“We hope our opponents who have been making a lot of noise about a re-run can prepare for a re-run in 2027.
“Now, this victory marks an end to this court shopping for adversaries and for us. It is the final victory in this journey that started in 2018.
“We will now keep our eyes further focused on the ball. All attempts to distract us have failed,” he said.
BRANDPOWER reports that Abiodun promised that his administration would now focus more on sustaining its legacies, saying that the people of the state would experience the good programmes his administration had for them.
“We will now focus on sustaining our legacies, the foundation of which we laid since we assumed office in 2019 and in the coming weeks, you will see some of the goodies that we will be unveiling,” he said.
The governor expressed gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for supporting his political journey, his team of lawyers led by Wole Olanipekun, national and state chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for their support.
Abiodun also commended the five-man panel of the Supreme Court, the Ogun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and the Appeal Court, for affirming the choice of the people of the state.
