Senator Adeola Dedicates Tribunal Victory To Constituents

Senator Solomon Adeola( APC, Lagos West) has dedicated his victory at the National Assembly and State Houses of Assembly Tribunal sitting in Ikeja to his numerous constituents that voted for him in the last Presidential and National Assembly Election.

Adeola  was petitioned at the Tribunal by Mr. Gbadebo Rhode-Vivour, the PDP senatorial candidate for Lagos West and PDP on the basis that the All Progressives Congress(APC) Senator for Lagos West,  was not validly elected.

Rhode - Vivour, therefore, asked the Tribunal to upturn the victory of Adeola but  the three-man Tribunal  led by Justice Kunaza Hamidu in its judgement validated it. 

In a statement by Chief Kayode Odunaro;
Media Adviser to Senator Adeola, shortly 
 after the judgement earlier today, Senator Adeola said the judgement is yet another validation of the mandate of the people of Lagos West for him to continue his representation in the Red Chamber of the National Assembly.

"I want to thank all my constituents for believing in me and dedicate this victory at the tribunal to them wholly. Their faith in me has been further validated by the judiciary who rightly shied away from upturning the Democratic wishes of the people of Lagos West on spurious petition" the senator stated.

The Senate Ommittee Chairman on Finance promised to continue to effectively represents the people of Lagos West adding that in a few weeks time he will undertake his first Next Level Town Hall Meeting and Empowerment of constituents as is his usual practise.

"The judiciary has once again risen up in defence of democratic rights of the people through its considered rulings on all the issues raised in the petition and it is another great day for democratic development and the rule of law" the senator stated.
