The statement read: “Our governorship hopeful asked the people not to be scared of rumours making the rounds that a particular national leader of APC and two other governors of the party are pilling undue pressure on the court. “He affirmed absolute respect, trust and confidence in the integrity of the court as the last hope of the common man to set standard and adjudicate fairly on issues. “Nowhere did our governor in waiting boasted of any fore-knowledge or preempt the decision of our lord justices. We are aware that media agents of APC have twisted his statements for a failed sinister motive. We condemn such misrepresentation as ungentlemanly and unacceptable. “Senator Adeleke who is currently in the United States for medicals only called for prayers for a favourable verdict of the Supreme Court through the state chairman of the party. We thus issue this statement to correct the impression that Senator Adeleke is privy to any development.” earlier reported that the Supreme Court recently adjourned its ruling on the election in the state to July 5 in its sitting headed by Ibrahim Muhammad, who is the acting chief justice of Nigeria.
