Member, House of Representatives representing Ifelodun/Irepodun Federal Constituency, Osun State, Afolabi Olalekan Rasheed, has described the Supreme Court judgment that upheld Gboyega Oyetola as Osun State Governor as triumph of facts over fiction.
The lawmaker, who spoke after judgment was delivered, said having spent eight years in Osun State House of Assembly, he knew the procedures.

He said: “What the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had been brandishing was fiction. The verdict is a vindication of fact over fiction. So, we are glad. It was a judgment of five against two. The judiciary has always been the last hope of the masses. It is only people from the other side that always castigate the judiciary, when judgment does not favour them…”

On politicians, who don’t have faith in the judiciary when they lose their cases, he said: “There are bad losers and good losers…Battles are not always for the swiftest. You win some and lose some. That is life.”
