According to NAN, at the country home of Adeleke, large crowd were seen within and outside his premises singing and dancing.

Motorcycle riders, also known as ‘Okada riders’, in their large numbers, were also seen using their motorcycles to display different skills to celebrate the victory.

Speaking on the victory, Mrs Dupe Adeleke-Sanni, Adeleke’s elder sister, commended the judiciary for retrieving the ‘stolen mandate’.

“We thank God for returning our stolen mandate,” she told NAN.

“It is not by our might or power but by the grace of God that we have the mandate back.”

She, however, commended the people of Ede for standing with the family during the trying period, urging them to continue to stand with them.

A three-member panel of the tribunal said during its ruling that the re-run election that held on 27 September, 2018, was illegal.

The tribunal, therefore, deducted the votes scored by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, in the re-run after declaring it illegal.
