An APC Stalwart in Lagelu Local Government and Chairman of Hassan Olawale Giwa (HOG) Foundation, Arc. Hassan Giwa has urged members of Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), Oyo State and the teeming supporters of All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state not to be despaired over the Federal Appeal Court ruling.
He disclosed that what Oyo ALGON needed at this point is the support by every member to reclaim their mandate at the Supreme Court.
Giwa made the disclosure while reacting to the judgment of the Federal Appeal Court between the Oyo State government and ALGON delivered on Tuesday.
According to the statement signed and made available to journalists by the HOG Foundation Chairman, Arc. Giwa, “in its judgment, Federal Appeal Court decided to discount the merit of the evidence before it, which showed that Oyo ALGON had a good case, but I have confidence that justice will be served on the merit of the case by the Supreme Court.
“Justice on any matter is based on the weight of evidence before a court. The failure by the Appeal Court to consider key and essential ingredients of evidence before it on their merit, amounted to a frustration of the course of justice in the matter,” he said.
Giwa, while urging the people of Oyo State, the teeming members of APC and ALGON members not to despair over the judgment, he tasked them to remain calm and prayerful, as justice will definitely be served at the Supreme Court.
He also called on the leadership of the party in the state not to relent in its effort to ensure unity prevailed among the party members to fight the course to the logical end.
