Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, the runner up gubernatorial aspirant during the Osun PDP gubernatorial primary has said he has no hands in the travail of Senator Ademola Adeleke.

Recall that Adeleke’s emergence as the governorship candidate of the party was nullified by a Bwari court.

A press release made available to reporters on Thursday by Mr. Kunle Omolere, the Director of Strategy of Ogunbiyi’s campaign team claimed that his principal only challenged his denial of the candidacy of Osun West Senatorial ticket, adding that the case had been decided.

“It is on record that the only case instituted by Dr Ogunbiyi was that of Osun West Senatorial ticket which was brazenly taken away from him after all reconciliations to the contrary. The case had long been decided and the rest is left to posterity”, he said.

Ogunbiyi pledged his loyalty to the PDP but noted that there is nothing wrong with somebody approaching the court to seek justice when cheated.

“The pursuit of the mandate of the PDP at the tribunal and other courts is the priority of all party members, and to the benefits of Osun people who are counting on the PDP.

“Let it be clear that Dr Ogunbiyi is not doing and will not do anything to frustrate or undermine this shared vision.

“It should also be clearly understood as well that if anybody is alleged to have acted in contrary to the law, he/she is obliged to rationally defend him/herself in the court and not put blames on an innocent man.’’
