- Popular Nigerian Musician, David Adeleke, AKA, Davido has reacted as the Court of Appeal on Thursday, set aside the April 2, 2019 judgement of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Bwari, which earlier voided Senator Ademola Adeleke’s candidacy for the 2018 governorship election in Osun State.
Aprokorepublic had reported that Justice Othman Musaon of the High Court had voided Adeleke’s candidacy on the grounds that he was not qualified.
The lawmaker was said to have been in possession of an invalid secondary school certificate.
But, a three-man panel of the court in a unanimous judgment on Thursday, ruled that the FCT High Court was wrong to have concluded that Adeleke did not complete Secondary School and that he made false representation as regards his educational qualification.
The lead judge, Justice Emmanuel Agim, faulted the trial court for assuming jurisdiction over the case filed by Wahab Raheem and Adam Habeeb outside the 14 days prescribed for pre-election cases by the constitution.
However, Davido in a swift reaction on his Twitter page thanked God for the victory.
”To God be the Glory !!! ONE MORE LAP TO GO !!! God, you are truly Great !! @IsiakaAdeleke1 Justice will prevail! Thank You! OSUN will be Happy Again! God go do am! We keep praying.’
