…Says judgement has rekindled hope in judiciary
The lawmaker-elect, representing Odo-Otin State Constituency on the Platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Osun State, Hon. (Prince) Wale Egbedun, has congratulated the Governor of the state, Senator Ademola Adeleke over the validation of his victory by the nation’s apex court in Abuja.

Hon. Egbedun, however, urged the judiciary to remain steadfast as the eyes of all Nigerians and indeed the whole world are on them to help ensure that democracy in Nigeria is put on a solid foundation.
He equally urged the entire residents of the state to continue to pray and support the state government, adding that their prayers and supports for the governor is responsible for the landmark achievements recorded by the present administration in the state.
